FORT MYERS, Fla. — According to a major league source, there are no active discussions involving any the Red Sox‘ potential surplus of starting pitchers. While the team has six established veteran starters (Jon Lester, John Lackey, Clay Buchholz, Felix Doubront, Jake Peavy and Ryan Dempster) along with a host of prospect depth options on their 40-man roster (Brandon Workman, Anthony Ranaudo, Allen Webster, Drake Britton and Rubby De La Rosa), the strong class of remaining free agent options who remain available (including Ervin Santana and Ubaldo Jimenez) has limited interest in the Sox’ starting pitchers, creating an expectation that if a trade market materializes, it would be unlikely to do so until at least March.
