After Trade, Boston Red Sox Turn Attention to Oswalt

After the Boston Red Sox Traded SS Macro Scutaro to the Colorado Rockies earlier this evening in what appears to be a salary dump, they are apparently putting together an offer for free agent Starting Pitcher Roy Oswalt.

FOX Sports Jon Morosi along with CBS Sports Jon Heyman are both reporting that now the Red Sox should have enough money to make a strong pursuit at Oswalt. Morosi did also tweet that the Detroit Tigers may be also in on Oswalt.

You might remember that last week the Yankees traded for star stud Michael Pineda and acquired free agent Hiroki Kuroda in the same night. The rival Red Sox have yet to make any kind of move to improve their roster since then; the acquisition of closer Andrew Bailey has been their only major move of the off season to date.

Oswalt went 9-10 with a 3.69 ERA in 23 starts for the Philadelphia Phillies last season.
