Unless it’s a now-ish move, Bryant’s fit with the Sox seems at least partly predicated on Mercedes and Eloy’s (and to a lesser degree Robert’s) rehab. If, by the trade deadline, Mercedes is still hitting and Eloy is looking strong and a good bet to return to full-ish strength by late Aug./early Sept., then the Sox already have 4 guys for 3 spots (Vaughn, Eloy, Mercedes, Eaton for LF, RF, DH).

I know that’s one of those good problems to have, and if Bryant is super cheap then I’ll take him because why not, but I can’t see why the Sox would empty the farm system for what may not be a significant upgrade.
