Red Sox, Pirates Express Interest In Duchscherer

Yesterday it was Jayson Werth; today the Red Sox have expressed interest in free agent righty Justin Duchscherer according to WEEI's Rob Bradford.  Bradford adds that Duchscherer "has made it clear to clubs that he is only interested in pursuing opportunities as a starter."  The Pirates have also expressed interest, reports Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

We examined Duchscherer's free agent stock here.  The 32-year-old righty has made only 32 starts over the past three years due to injuries and clinical depression, but after having both hips and his elbow surgically repaired he remarked to MLB.com's Jane Lee, "I can't imagine what else could go wrong."  He should require less than this year's $1.75MM guarantee, I imagine.  The Red Sox and Pirates had interest in him a year ago as well.
