MLB Trade Rumors: Red Sox Still Trying To Deal Ramon Ramirez

It’s no secret that the Red Sox are looking to add a piece to their bullpen, but it looks like they may also be looking to remove one. The Red Sox, who had almost traded Ramon Ramirez for Rod Barajas before the catcher suffered an injury, are still looking to deal the reliever to the Mets, possibly for a minor leaguer.

Dealing Ramirez might appear to be addition by subtraction, given his 4.57 ERA. But with two solid months out of the pen in June and July, it might not make a whole lot of sense to get rid of one of their more reliable relievers in recent months unless the return is good, and they have a replacement in mind.
