Report: Red Sox May Trade Josh Reddick To Improve Pitching
BOSTON (CBS) – The Red Sox have “gotten some play” on the trade market for outfielder Josh Reddick, according to a report from Yahoo!’s Tim Brown.
Brown reports the Red Sox could trade Reddick to help improve the starting rotation or bullpen, which was severely weakened when closer Jonathan Papelbon signed with the Phillies.
The team likely wouldn’t deal away Reddick without signing a free agent right fielder like Yoenis Cespedes, of Cuba, or veteran Carlos Beltran.
Reddick played well with J.D. Drew out for much of last year, batting .280 with 7 HRs and 28 RBI in 87 games.
