Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE
There are five teams interested in free agent Carl Pavano, and the Boston Red Sox are one of the clubs that have "checked in" on the right-hander.
One Marlins source didn’t seem enthusiastic about the team taking a chance on Pavano, who won 18 games for the Marlins in 2004.
Pavano has spent parts of the past four seasons with the Minnesota Twins. Last year for the club he maintained an ERA of 6.00 over 11 starts spanning 63 innings. He was hampered by shoulder injuries throughout the season, causing him to miss significant stretches of time.
Prior to his injury-plagued 2012 campaign, Pavano had made at least 32 starts from 2009-11 as a member of the Twins and Cleveland Indians. Over that span the right-hander posted an ERA of 4.36 with 5.1 strikeouts and 1.6 walks per nine innings.
Over 14 seasons at the major league level Pavano has posted an ERA of 4.39 with 5.5 strikeouts and 2.1 walks per nine innings.
