MLB: Red Sox pursuing Gonzalez

December 18, 2009

The Red Sox are not done yet. The team, which announced the signings of right-hander John Lackey and center fielder Mike Cameron on Wednesday, is working hard to obtainPadres first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, according to major-league sources. A deal is not close, and might not happen at all, sources said. Jed Hoyer, the Padres‘ new general manager — and Red Soxs former assistant GM — wants a high price for Gonzalez, whose contract is one of the biggest bargains in baseball. “Jed has been asking for a ton,” one source said.

The Padres would be tempted to move Gonzalez if they could get Buchholz and Ellsbury in the same deal, sources say. However, the Red Sox would be very reluctant to include both, according to another source.
