According to a baseball source, reports of the Red Sox' interest in free agent outfielder Josh Hamilton have been "overblown."

Bradford confirms that the Red Sox are in the market for a pair of corner outfielders this winter. Cody Ross hit free agency following the season, and Carl Crawford was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers next summer.

Still, Hamilton doesn’t “appear to be near the top of the team’s list of players it hopes to target,” according to Bradford. While Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington has held discussions with Hamilton, he admits that this time of year he’s “talked to just about every agent of any prominent free agent.”
