Report: PHI, CIN, BOS, OAK in on Marcus SemienJanuary 13, 2021 | 03:21 PM
Jim Bowden of The Athletic reports that the Phillies, Reds, Red Sox and Athletics "have all been involved to some extent" in negotiations with Marcus Semien.
Analysis: Bowden adds that "there are probably more clubs interested" in the free agent infielder, but the four listed are the ones he knows of so far. With Xander Bogaerts holding down shortstop for the Red Sox, they would want Semien to play second base. The rest of the clubs want him at his customary shortstop position. Semien really struggled during the truncated 2020 campaign, but he was superb in 2019 and is just 30, so he should net a pretty nice multi-year deal.
