Red Sox GM Ben Cherington Says Boston “Unlikely” To Add Another Starting Pitcher

Boston Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Wednesday night that the team is “unlikely” to add another starting pitcher, according to Evan Drellich of MLB.com. The Red Sox have been tied to free-agent starters Edwin Jackson and Roy Oswalt recently.

"We wouldn't rule out adding a starter, but I think it's unlikely at this point," Cherington said. "Keep looking for ways to improve the team, including the pitching staff, but I wouldn't expect any major changes between now and the report date."

Cherington said that Boston has no in-person meeting with Oswalt and that he remains focused on working on the team’s arbitration issues, especially those of Alfredo Aceves and David Ortiz, according to MLB.com.
