White Sox Rumors: Boston Red Sox Still Interested In Gavin Floyd

The Boston Red Sox are still showing interest in Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Gavin Floyd, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports. Boston has long been rumored to be one of the suitors for Floyd's services, and it appears that the idea of acquiring him hasn't been tabled yet.

The recent moves made by Boston's biggest rival may be impacting their level of interest. While it seemed possible that the New York Yankees would stand relatively pat this offseason, they exploded last week to acquire Michael Pineda from the Seattle Mariners and Hiroki Kuroda from free agency. With reinforcements in place, the Red Sox are likely considering their next step.

Acquiring Floyd wouldn't quite match adding a talent like Pineda, but he would certainly qualify as a firm upgrade. Currently, Boston is looking at Daniel Bard, Alfredo Aceves, Vicente Padilla, Aaron Cook and Carlos Silva as its primary rotation options beyond Jon Lester, Josh Beckett and Clay Buchholz.
