Red Sox director of baseball operations Chaim Bloom said Tuesday that the club is looking options to replace Story at short stopseither by way of free agency or the exchange market. Despite not giving player names, it is known that Boston would be interested in a trade with the Marlins for Joey Wendle. Similarly, other free agency players who could fill the void that Story will leave are: the Cuban Jose Iglesiasthe North American Josh Harrisonthe Dominican Jonathan Villar and the Venezuelans: Elvis Andrus, Cesar Hernandez and Rougned Odor.
