MLB Trade Rumors: Red Sox Not Pursuing Astros' Wandy Rodriguez

With news that the Rich Harden trade to Boston has fallen through, it's clear that the Red Sox were intent on adding a starting pitcher. Now that the deal is deal, the Red Sox may be looking to bring in another starter before the non-waiver trade deadline at 4 p.m. EDT on Sunday.

One of the rumored names on the move is Houston Astros starting pitcher Wandy Rodriguez. However, according to a report from Jon Morosi of FOX Sports on Twitter, the Red Sox aren't pursuing the Astros' seven-game winner.
