ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — According to Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe, Red Sox first baseman/left fielder Mike Carp requested a trade coming out of the All-Star break. Red Sox manager John Farrell confirmed that he’s had several conversations with Carp — a key bench contributor in 2013 — about his role.
“We’ve met multiple times coming out of the break and since the break, since we’ve started back up. He wants to play more. I respect that,” said Farrell. “I can respect his desire to get on the field.”
Teams — particularly NL teams — have been scouting Carp as a possible trade deadline addition.
