Red Sox Trade Rumors 2011: Sox, Rangers Talking Koji Uehara, Mark Lowe

The Boston Red Sox are reportedly involved in trade discussions with the Texas Rangers about relievers Koji Uehara and Mark Lowe

The Boston Red Sox are reportedly involved in trade discussions with the Texas Rangers and could be interested in departing with Jed Lowrie to land relief pitching help.

According to a report from MLB.com affiliate MLB Blogs, the Red Sox and Rangers met Wednesday morning. The Sox are looking to upgrade their pitching staff and are reportedly interested in Mark Lowe and Koji Uehara. The Rangers are looking to add Lowrie in return. 

Several teams are interested in Uehara, according to the report, among them the Baltimore Orioles. The Rangers still hold the reliever in high regard despite his poor postseason performance last season.

Lowe was 2-3 last season with a 3.80 ERA in 45.0 innings. Uehara was also 2-3, with a 2.35 ERA and 85 strikeouts in 65.0 innings. He allowed five runs in 1.1 innings during three postseason appearances.
