Sox still looking at Bailey

ESPN's Buster Olney tweeted earlier this afternoon that the Sox are still interested in trading for A's closer Andrew Bailey. The assumption is that the proposed deal would center around a couple major league ready prospects (probably including Josh Reddick) as that's what the A's have announced to be their demands.

With the trade, unless another occurs or the team signs another RF, that leaves the Sox with Ryan Kalish and Juan Carlos Linares as the only right fielders on the roster come spring training.


The other team thought to be interested in the services of Bailey is the Texas Rangers.
