Cherington Hints Interest In Veteran Sox Players

(Christopher Evans/Boston Herald)
In a wide-ranging interview on WEEI's Dennis And Callahan Morning Show, Red Sox GM Ben Cherington hinted that other clubs have expressed trade interest in some veteran players on the team. While he didn't completely rule out dealing some of Boston's young talent, the GM seemed hesitant to touch that youthful core. Said Cherington, "Certainly we have younger players that everybody wants, but there are other players that we have that are of interest...we have players that are valuable and clearly would help a winning team. And we're getting calls on those players." Most agree that the veterans who could have value to contenders are closer Koji Uehara, left-fielder Hanley Ramirez, third-baseman Pablo Sandoval, first-baseman Mike Napoli and right-fielder Shane Victorino.
