Report: Red Sox Are Scouting Scott Podsednik

Wednesday April 18th, 2012

The Boston Red Sox are reportedly scouting Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Scott Podsednik in Triple-A, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.


The Red Sox could be interested in the former All-Star to help fill the void left by Jacoby Ellsbury’s injury. Ellsbury, last year’s runner up to the American League MVP, suffered a subluxation of his right shoulder last week. While doctors have determined that the superstar won’t need surgery, he still could miss up to eight weeks. Podsednik last played in the Major Leagues in 2010. That year he hit .297/.342/.382 with 35 stolen bases in 134 games between Kansas City and Los Angeles. In seven games for the Phillies Triple-A affiliate this season he has hit just .150/.292/.150.
