He is having a good season, but given Colorado’s poor season, it looks as if he will become trade bait. The Red Sox have shown interest and have scouted him a few times. They would likely not want to give up prospects for the 37-year-old former Sox farmhand, but could offer an outfielder.
One of the outfielders Boston isn’t reportedly interested in trading this summer is Cody Ross. The 31-year-old is set to become a free agent this winter, but Rob Bradford of WEEI.com makes a case for the Red Sox retaining the veteran. For his part, Ross seems to be up for a return.
Should the Red Sox bring Ross back for 2013?
