As for Ozuna, besides Nick Castellanos, who is a better free-agent option to play RF for the 2020 Sox?
There isnít a better option. No one is arguing that. My point is that filling the RF position with any free agent is less helpful than spending that money on pitching, pitching, and more pitching.

At this point, may as well just punt on the RF situation for now. If this team is still gunning for a playoff spot at the trade deadline, and RF is the only gaping hole in the lineup, then make a trade at that time. However, without 2 new faces in the rotation and another solid late-inning option, this team will never even get to the point where they are contemplating midseason acquisitions for a pennant chase.
