The Boston Red Sox had been tied to free agent Bobby Abreu
as a potential backup option at first base and in the outfield, but the team is
now unlikely to pursue the veteran for such a role, according to Nick Cafardo
of The Boston Globe.
Abreu wants to stay in baseball, and the Red Sox were among the teams that tried him out. But I was told the Red Sox are unlikely to pursue him as that backup first baseman/outfielder they’re looking for.
