At a time when Eduardo Nunez may be close to rejoining the Red Sox, the free agent was at the team’s spring training facility on Saturday afternoon. The infielder, who hit .321/.353/.539 with eight homers in 38 games for the Red Sox after being acquired from the Giants in a late July trade, said that a deal wasn’t final. “We’re just trying to figure out what’s going on,” Nunez said as he left JetBlue Park. “I just came here to visit with my friends, to visit with my teammates. [The Red Sox will] let you know when we have something.” That said, Nunez made clear that he would like to return to the team with whom he finished the 2017 season. “For sure,” he said, suggesting that he entered the offseason hopeful that he could find common ground for a return to the Red Sox. “[The time in Boston] was great, great. A great experience.” While the Red Sox and Nunez appear to be working on a deal that would bring the player back on a one-year deal with an option, his return is dependent upon the 30-year-old first passing a physical and demonstrating that the PCL strain in his right knee — which limited him to just two games after Sept. 9 — is no longer a limitation.
