Hot Stove: Red Sox open to dealing Andrew Bailey?

According to a tweet from ESPN’s Buster Olney, the Red Sox [1] are open to dealing reliever Andrew Bailey [2], but likely won’t because of how low his trade value is after an injury-plagued 2012 season.

Tweeted Olney [3]: “Rival teams say that Red Sox open to dealing Andrew Bailey–but because his value is currently low, odds of them trading him are pretty low.”

The Red Sox traded for Bailey last offseason, sending outfielder Josh Reddick [4], third baseman Miles Head and right-hander Raul Alcantara to the Athletics in exchange for Bailey and outfielder Ryan Sweeney [5].
