Red Sox say no additional trades imminent

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Both Red Sox GM Ben Cherington and manager John Farrell said that, in the aftermath of the trade that sent Jake Peavy to the Giants, the team does not anticipate another deal in the immediate future. (That notion of immediacy, of course, is wildly subjective.)
Asked if Peavy signaled another shoe being ready to drop, Farrell disputed the claim.
“I don’t know if I’d put in that type of description,” said Farrell. “There’s nothing imminent, I can tell you that, or even remotely close, to any other deals to be made. But their work and their efforts continue on as everyone in baseball now.”
Cherington said that the team continues to explore whether there might be additional trades, but is not yet at the point of another deal (or deals).
“We’re listening. We’re gathering information as we have been over really the last month or so, and as we get closer to the deadline, it starts to become more clear as to what teams are the most motivated to add in different areas, whether it’s starting pitching or bullpen or position players or whatever. And so we’ll start to get more clarity on exactly what opportunities might be out there for us,” said Cherington. “But we’re not there yet. We’re not closing in on anything yet, but we’re listening and we’ll just see how the rest of the week goes.”
