In house reliever in final slot like Martinez or Omogrosso.
Not a bad .500 team, but I'd think we'd need to improve a few spots to have a chance to contend.
We still need experienced relief help, another bench outfielder with pop to take some righty at-bats from Viciedo (if he's not traded) and at least an experienced catcher who can hit. Gimenez is not a major league quality backup, and we need some cover for Flowers - especially if he goes south with the bat.
I'd also think that the Sox should deal Thornton to free up some salary - he's got an easily declined option after the season and earns $5.5M this year
