Back at the beginning of last December, we reported that the Red Sox were showing interest in right-handed starter Kyle Lohse. That interest waned, but is reportedly picking up again. Lohse had a 16-3 record and a 2.86 ERA last season, but—over his whole career he is a .520 pitcher with a 4.45 ERA. Nevertheless, Boston may be looking for some back-of-the-rotation insurance in case of injury or ineffectiveness. Also, it can't be forgotten that Felix Doubront (the current #5 starter) pitched a career-high 161 innings last year, after being injured most of 2011.
