Trey Mancini may be one of the least talked about free agents out on the market.
After being traded from the Baltimore Orioles to the Houston Astros, Mancini earned his first World Series ring after batting back from a bout with colon cancer in 2020.
The Astros chose not to exercise his club option, making him a free agent.
The slugger hit .239 with 18 home runs and 63 RBI with Baltimore and Houston.
But Mancini’s power and ability to play in the outfield and at first base could make him an attractive option for a team looking to add a key bat.
Not sure why Trey Mancini isn't being talked about more as a great fit for the Red Sox. Can play outfield, 1B, and DH, he's put up excellent numbers at Fenway and other AL East ballparks, and he's only 30. Sox could get him for a lower AAV than the Astros are giving José Abreu.

Red Sox Fan Gives Take On Mancini
This fan has some interesting points.
Mancini can play in the outfield and at first base.
In addition to that, he could be a designated hitter option.
The Red Sox could certainly use a big bat in their lineup.
He has also posted some excellent numbers in American League East ballparks, especially at Fenway Park during his time with the Orioles.
The 30-year-old would almost certainly come at a cheaper cost than somebody like Abreu, who was signed by the Astros for $60 million over three years.
The Red Sox could also have him fulfill multiple roles.
Mancini may come off the board at a later date, but he would be a valuable piece for any team.
