REPORT: Sox Have Inquired About Trade For Teheran

Teheran (L); Vizcaino (R)
According to's Jim Bowden, the Red Sox have contacted the Atlanta Braves about a trade for starting pitcher Julio Teheran. Bowden also claims that Dave Dombrowski is interested in Braves relief pitcher Arodys Vizcaino. Of course, the real question is how much Atlanta wants back from Boston in prospects and/or active roster players. If this deal would send either Yoan Moncada or Andrew Benintendi southward—then we say, NO! Similarly, any deal cannot touch The Killer B's on the major league roster. Boston has plenty of other solid prospects in the organization, but if Atlanta insists on any of these—then we can do without Teheran. The 25-year old Vizcaino is 1-2 this year, with a stellar 2.01 ERA in 32 games out of the Braves bullpen. Teheran—also 25-years-old—is 3-7 this season—with a 2.66 ERA over 15 starts.
