Red Sox Rumors: Boston Not Seriously Pursuing Adam LaRoche

While the Boston Red Sox have been tied to free agent first baseman Adam LaRoche as a fallback option for Mike Napoli, the team doesn’t really want to surrender the draft pick it would take to sign the slugger, reports Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.


Earlier this month it was reported that the Red Sox had reached a three-year, $39 million agreement with Napoli. However, talks hit a snag during his physical and a deal has yet to be officially announced.

It was recently reported that the Red Sox were eyeing LaRoche as an alternative to Napoli if the deal eventually fell through. However, like other teams, Boston doesn’t want to surrender the draft pick it would take to sign the veteran first baseman.

At this point it seems as if the most likely scenario would have the Red Sox reaching an agreement with Napoli and LaRoche re-signing with the Washington Nationals.
