Red Sox Place Adrian Gonzalez On Trade Waivers, According To Report

The Boston Red Sox reportedly placed first baseman Adrian Gonzalez on trade waivers on Wednesday. The move itself is not a shocking one at this stage of the season.

Gonzalez, 30, was surrounded by trade rumors near the non-waiver trade deadline, with the Los Angeles Dodgers showing mild interest in the first baseman. Gonzalez took the interest as a sign that teams recognized his ability and production, but he also said that he wanted to stay in Boston.

It would take a team with a big wallet such as the Dodgers to land Gonzalez in a trade -- he's owed $21 million a year through the 2016 season, and his salary goes up to $21.5 million per year for 2017 and 2018.

Gonzalez is hitting .304 this season for the Red Sox with 15 homers and 85 RBI.
