Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe notes that the D'Backs have been scouting the Red Sox recently. This may be nothing more than a straightforward assignment, but Chad Tracy could appeal to the Red Sox. Mike Lowell should return after the All-Star break, but Tracy, who just came off the DL, could appeal to Boston if Lowell's injury is worse than anticipated.
The D'Backs "would like to move" the corner infielder, who will become a free agent after the season if the D'Backs don't exercise his $7MM option for next season. The Red Sox have limited space on their bench, however, especially now that Julio Lugo is boosting his trade value by hitting better.
