Red Sox Interested In Fuentes, Mahay

6:09pm: Fuentes is looking for $6-8MM per season, according to's Buster Olney (on Twitter).

12:12pm: The Red Sox are interested in lefty relievers Brian Fuentes and Ron Mahay, reports Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald.  The Sox clearly have a need for southpaw relief, and unlike Scott Downs, Fuentes and Mahay will not cost a draft pick. 

I wonder if Fuentes will first try to find a closing job.  The Orioles are known to have contacted Fuentes' agent and can pitch a ninth inning opening.  Though they seek a closer, the Diamondbacks are not in on Fuentes according to's Steve Gilbert.

Check out my free agent stock watch piece on Fuentes here.  My one-year, $4MM idea from October now seems light.
