Red Sox Wanted Mets Catcher Barajas

Boston Red SoxFrom Mark J. Miller, Yahoo Sports:

Even though Victor Martinez just returned from the disabled list and went 1-for-4 with an RBI in a 6-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim yesterday, the Boston Red Sox are looking to add a catcher before the July 31 non-waiver trading deadline passes and the team had discussions with the New York Mets about bringing catcher Rod Barajas to New England, according to WEEI.

The Sox were offering reliever Ramon Ramirez for the catcher, WEEI reports, but that now appears to be off the table since Barajas went on the disabled list yesterday.

Ramirez, who has a 4.69 ERA, is making $1.55 million this year and will have salary increases for the next two seasons.
