Red Sox conscious of new luxury-tax penalties this offseason

OXON HILL, Md. (AP) The big-spending Boston Red Sox could be far more conservative this offseason because of baseball's new luxury tax rules.

President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Monday that the new collective bargaining agreement's stricter penalties for spending above a certain payroll threshold could factor in to the team's plans. His top priority is to find an eighth-inning reliever and also add another bat, but don't expect him to throw money around to make it happen.

The Red Sox had $209 million committed to player salaries last season, fourth in the majors. Dombrowski didn't guarantee Boston would be under the $195 million mark for 2017 but would like to try to avoid the extra penalties in place moving forward for going over.
