While some might see Kyle Lohse as a fit for the Red Sox given their financial flexibility, it is “highly unlikely” that Red Sox will be the team to sign him, a major league source tells Rob Bradford of WEEI.com. Boston had some interest in Lohse earlier in the offseason, but that was before they signed Ryan Dempster.
Predictably, the Red Sox aren't keen on Lohse in part because of the draft pick compensation tied to him. Besides that, they already have a starting five in place with Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, John Lackey, Felix Doubront, and Dempster.
Last month, we learned that the Angels aren't expected to pursue the right-hander either.
