The Boston Red Sox are expected to “be in the mix” for
reportedly available Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Justin Upton, reports
Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald. Meanwhile, outfielder Jason Bay, who
recently became a free agent after reaching an agreement on a contract buyout
with the New York Mets, would be “very interested” in returning to the Red Sox,
reports Rob Bradford of WEEI.com.
The Diamondbacks are once again actively shopping outfielder Justin Upton and despite the appearance of the Red Sox on Upton’s no-trade list, that would not prohibit a trade of the 25-year-old to Boston, according to a major-league source.
