According to the Providence Journal, the Red Sox are interested in Pittsburgh Pirates left handed reliever Damaso Marte due to the struggles of lefty specialist Javier Lopez.
The Red Sox are also interested in Salomon Torres, but the asking price by Dave Littlefield appears to be too steep.
What do the Red Sox have to offer? Here is a listing of the top prospects in the Red Sox organization. Historically the Red Sox and Pirates have had a good dealing relationship. Freddy Sanchez was a top prospect for the Red Sox when he was traded to the Pirates. There aren't many trades in recent Pirates history that have worked in the Pirates favor, deals with Boston and San Diego have been the exceptions.
