With the trade deadline quickly approaching, there have been several conflicting reports regarding the availability of Boston Red Sox right-hander Josh Beckett. While it was initially reported that the Red Sox were listening to inquiries from the Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Dodgers and Texas Rangers, Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com tweeted last evening that Boston will not trade Beckett by today’s deadline:

Yesterday afternoon, Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington told Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe that he was not trying to move Beckett.

Still, Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com later reported that while Boston wasn’t aggressively seeking to move the right-hander, they were willing to listen to offers. McAdam said the Dodgers, Braves and Rangers had all inquired on Beckett.

Edes later reported that the Rangers still hadn’t "closed the door" on a possible deal involving Beckett, but his source told him there was a "2 percent chance" of something happening. The last reported on the topic was Edes’ tweet above saying Beckett will not be traded by today’s deadline.
