The compensation matter is currently before MLB commissioner Bud Selig. The Red Sox could be getting a "significant" player in return for Epstein (via Boston Globe). That report that revealed the news about a "significant" player also said that the decision on the compensation matter would be known before Spring Training.

Stay tuned as we will have information about the compensation the Red Sox receive as soon as the decision is known.
