Red Sox Among Ten Clubs Inquiring On Christian Yelich

Don't get too excited, but multiple sources indicate that the Red Sox are among ten teams that have contacted the Miami Marlins about left-hand hitting OF Christian Yelich. The 26-year-old is reportedly upset that Derek Jeter has traded away the core of the team (including a few of his close friends). So, now, he wants out of MarlinVille as well. Over his five-year career, Yelich is a .290 hitter, with 59 HRs and an OPS of .800. Thanks to the depletion of the Red Sox farm system over the last two years (which has, in fairness, netted us Craig Kimbrel and Chris Sale), we may not have the talent to being back a Yelich. Stay tuned.
