Red Sox Scout Saltalamacchia

Texas Rangers catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia is playing winter ball, and the Boston Red Sox have apparently kept tabs.

According to Boston Globe reporter Nick Cafardo, Red Sox special assistant Allard Baird recently scouted Salty. Cafardo added that Saltalamacchia’s defense didn’t look solid on that particular night, though. Cafardo also notes that other scouts who have seen the catcher in winter ball thought his defensive skills were up to par.
