Is Shane Victorino on the Trade Block?

The Red Sox have a crowded outfield and some decisions to make. Could one of them be to trade Shane Victorino? It appears possible according to Peter Abraham who made his first prediction of what the Red Sox final roster would look like without Victorino. Abraham explains that Mookie Betts has to be in the lineup. He is too good not to be playing everyday. The question is what could the Sox get for Victorino and after last year do you really want to turn over the outfield keys to Rusney Castillo, Mookie Betts and Hanley Ramirez who is playing in the oufield for the first time? Victorino is getting older, he is injury prone but he is also proven. He appears to be healthy and motivated to have a big year in the final year of his contract. Do the Red Sox really want to trade that? Stay tuned.

Here is Abraham's Roster Projection:
