The Boston Red Sox are on the market for starting pitching thanks to several injuries that have plagued the team, but not many pegged the Red Sox as a team in the market for a reliever as well.

According to some, the Red Sox have interest in picking up a reliever and have a known interest in Francisco Rodriguez of the Milwaukee Brewers.

The report comes from Evan Drellich of

Francisco Rodriguez is throwing well and the Red Sox have seen him, but Milwaukee got a great haul back for Zack Greinke. The situations, of course, aren’t the same, but the asking price for K-Rod could be high.

This is currently something that is being swept under the rug with the Red Sox having interest in high-profile names like Jake Peavy. Still, the addition of a reliever such as Rodriguez would provide a huge boost overall given they get healthier or the front office swings a trade for a legit starter.

Stay tuned. The next week in Boston should be wild.
