Ichiro Suzuki: While Ichiro is 41 years old, he can still be a productive player. The big draw to bringing in Ichiro as a free agent would be that he would not cost very much. In ’14 Ichiro batted .284 with one home run and 22 RBIs.

He is still a solid defender, fast and is good at making contact. Declining skills would be the concern with him.

Corey Dickerson: This is a long shot, and it would be difficult for the Sox to acquire him. Dickerson has all-star potential, and could be a legit .320-plus hitter in his prime. Due to the fact that he is young, and is cheap financially, it would cost a lot to bring him over via trade.

Considering to the fact that the Sox don’t have an overall strong farm system, this trade will be difficult to make. In ’14, Dickerson batted .312 with 24 home runs and 76 RBIs. The outfielder also scored 74 runs for the Colorado Rockies.

In my opinion, Viciedo will not be the left fielder on Opening Day. Who will be the left fielder, that is tough to say, mostly due to the unpredictability of the remainder of this offseason.

With the Sox having limited funds remaining, they may not be able be able to sign or trade for a big name player for the rest of the offseason. If they get creative it is possible for them to acquire a solid left fielder that can contribute this upcoming season.
