MLB Trade Deadline: Red Sox Rumors And Reports As July 31 Approaches

With only three weeks to go before the July 31 trade deadline, the Red Sox are looking to acquire the pieces necessary to push them into the postseason.

The obvious need is for relief help, as the Red Sox bullpen has the second-worst ERA in the American League. Scott Downs and Kerry Wood have been at the center of early rumors.

The Sox are also looking to possibly pick up an outfielder, decimated as they have been by injuries. With the Phillies looking to move Jayson Werth, a deal could be in the works.

Theo Epstein has been known for making big deadline moves in the past. With a few big holes to fill, we'll see what he's got up his sleeves this year.
