As Nat mentioned in an earlier post today, the Red Sox are suddenly having to figure out how to replace Brandon Moss. And in an update via the Extra Bases blog, Boston Globe reporter Nick Cafardo brings light to Brad Wilkerson’s situation.
Wilkerson was waived by the Mariners last week, and has since cleared waivers. He has not given his agent, Scott Boras, any indication of his plans.
Boras, however, confirmed that the Red Sox were interested in Wilkerson this off-season. Cafardo suggests that if they’re looking for a long-term answer to their sudden roster opening, Wilkerson could be an option.
