Veteran outfielder Adam Duvall reportedly has some teams interested in bringing him on.

According to The New York Post’s Jon Heyman, the Angels and Red Sox are in the bidding for the 35-year-old.

Heyman adds barring any additional interest from teams, it would appear Duvall lands with those two.

This would be a return to Boston if he chooses that route after he finished his 2023 campaign slashing .247/.303/.531 with 21 home runs and 58 RBI.

Now, the Red Sox also are reported to be in contact with Justin Turner’s representation which poses the question around how they plan to utilize the designated hitter in 2024. The team, according to The Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham, doesn’t have plans to use the DH, rather they anticipate spreading out their at-bats.

So whoever they intend to bring back should have some defensive capabilities, but know how the Red Sox are, they’re still going to prioritize a bat. Duvall can play in each outfield spot as well as first base.

Duvall heads into his 11th season and many teams could benefit from a veteran presence. Plus, his numbers show he was pretty consistent last season.

Across those seasons and five teams, Duvall three All-Star selections and a Gold Glove Award.
