The Red Sox have been very quiet so far this offseason, but that could soon change.

According to Buster Olney of ESPN, there's a sense in the league that the Red Sox "have talked about a ton of possibilities and are preparing for a series of moves before the start of spring training."

Olney adds: "the expectation is that they will in an effort to upgrade the '21 team."

One of the moves could involve Andrew Benintendi. For more on that, click here. MLB Network's Mark Feinsand reports an executive would be "shocked" if he isn't traded by the end of the weekend.

It's unclear what some of the other moves could be, but the Red Sox have reportedly had interest in a number of pitchers that are still available.

According to USA Today, Rob Manfred has told teams to expect spring training to start on time and to plan on playing the full 162-game schedule.
