The Red Sox have checked in on veteran starter Tim Hudson, and several other teams have, too, but while Boston is said to be big admirers of Hudson, it’s still a little hard to imagine the loyal Hudson leaving the Braves.
Hudson is drawing significant interest from around the league (MLB.com reported the Indians and Royals, too), but Boston’s interest is intriguing, and maybe even to Hudson, who just saw them win the World Series. One person familiar with the Red Sox’s thinking said, ‘They really want him.”
Of course, Boston is already very well-stocked with starting pitching, having just won with their six guys manning five spots. They’d have to do something to make room for Hudson if they could make a deal with him.
