Sox And Halos Could Hook Up In Trumbo Deal

Mark Trumbo
According to multiple sources—including the Globe's Nick Cafardo—the Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim; Orange County; California; United States of America; Earth; Milky Way Galaxy may be in line to make a trade. If Mike Napoli moves on, Boston might go after first-baseman (and future DH) Mark Trumbo. Now, Cafardo also throws out the name of "power reliever" Kevin Jepsen as a possible Red Sox target. The Angels—who have made horrible off-season moves so far—are still looking for starting pitching (of which Boston has a surplus). The 29-year old Jepsen was 1-3 with a 4.50 ERA in 2013. Trumbo—who will turn 28 in two months—hit just .234 last year, but clouted 34 HRs and knocked in 100 runs.
