BECKETT WILL NO LONGER BE SUBJECT OF TRADE FOR RED SOX
Thu, 02 Aug 2012 02:30 AM EDT

The Boston Red Sox won’t trade Josh Beckett, a team source related late Monday night. And while the club fielded numerous inquiries about the availability of outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, the MVP runner-up who is acceptable for free agency after the 2013 season, the club has no plans at this time to trade him.

Additionally, the Boston Red Sox have abandoned any plans to trade outfielder Ryan Sweeney after he injured the pinkie finger on his throwing hand after slapping a dugout door in frustration after grounding out Monday night.

Sweeney is anticipated to go on the DL, a team source recounted, with the team having to add another outfielder to its list in time for the game against the Tigers.

A major-league source announced the Red Sox were making an attempt to trade Sweeney to the Cincinnati Reds, who are in the market for a left-handed hitting outfielder. Basketball odds

“I feel a bit like I let my team down if it’s bad,” Sweeney said after Boston’s 7-3 victory over the Tigers. “I feel terrible at the moment. Obviously when you hit something you just have so much adrenaline going you do not know what happened so after it just hurts a bit.

“I’ve never broken my hand before so I don’t know what that feels like. I know it hurts a small now though.”

Red Sox Chief Executive Officer Larry Lucchino, GM Ben Cherington, his top assistants and the team’s doctors all met in manager Bobby Valentine’s office following Monday night’s game. Reporters were ushered out of the clubhouse before the meeting, which lasted at least a half hour, stopped. At about that point, the team source expounded, the Red Sox aren’t anticipated to make a major deal before the trade cut off point.

The Boston Red Sox had engaged in an effort to see if they matched up with another team for Beckett, with the Rangers emerging as the most likely partner. But Texas’ interest may have been halfhearted at the best particularly with Beckett owed more than $36 million on the rest of his agreement — $15.75 million in both 2013 and 2014 and more than $5 million for the final 2 months of this season.

The Braves and Rangers are the clubs that have been discussed as possible trading partners for Beckett. The Atlanta Braves have little interest, one major league source said. The Rangers, however, are looking to add a pitcher, especially with Colby Lewis lost for the season and their chief rivals in the American League West, the Angels, adding Zack Greinke last week in a deal with the Brewers.

Beckett is expected to make his scheduled start against the Tigers and Cy Young winner Justin Verlander. Beckett declined to address his position before Monday’s game. “I’ve got nothing for you,” he revealed.

Beckett is 5-9 with a 4.57 ERA in 17 starts. His strikeout proportion of 6.81 per 9 innings is the lowest of the career, though is FIP (fielding independent percentage) is 3.52, ranking 28th among all pitchers with A hundred or more innings this season. That is below his career FIP of 3.67.
