The Boston Red Sox are getting some calls about their extra outfielders.

The Boston Red Sox have a surplus of outfielders, thanks in part to Jacoby Ellsbury's pending return from the disabled list. With Boston struggling this season, other teams are calling about some of those outfielders, according to a Thursday report from the Boston Herald, and the Red Sox are said to be "open minded" about a deal.

Daniel Nava and Ryan Sweeney are the two players Silverman mentions as possible trade chips in the report. Boston is less likely to deal Ryan Kalish and Cody Ross, who figure into the team's plans going forward.

One team mentioned as a possible dance partner, the Chicago Cubs. Boston is expected to ask the Cubs about starting pitchers Matt Garza and Ryan Dempster.
