MLB Trade Rumors: Red Sox Put Jacoby Ellsbury And Jon Lester On Waivers

The Boston Red Sox appear to be headed towards a major roster shake-up this offseason. They have started to gauge interest on their players by placing them on waivers and Jacoby Ellsbury and Jon Lester are the latest two Red Sox eligible to be claimed.

Ellsbury is making a little over $8 million this season and is set to become a free agent in 2014. He is arbitration eligible next season.

Lester makes $7.6 million this season, $11.6 million next season and has a $13 million team option in 2014.

If either player is claimed, Boston can let the player go, pull him back or work out a trade with the team that claimed him.
