Alex Gordon: Likely free-agent destinations

Boston Red Sox

2016 Committed Salary: $138.4 million

The Red Sox are another interesting team to keep an eye on. Boston has three budding outfield stars in Mookie Betts, Rusney Castillo, and Jackie Bradley Jr. One of these youngsters could be traded to bring back a starting pitcher, another huge area of need for the Red Sox. If that happens, a pursuit of Gordon could be the next logical step. The Red Sox invested their money poorly last offseason, but Gordon would seem to be a much safer investment than Pablo Sandoval or Hanley Ramirez.

There will of course be plenty of other teams pursuing Gordon, but those mentioned above seem most likely. Other potential destinations include: Detroit Tigers, New York Mets, and San Francisco Giants.
