Red Sox Meet With Lackey’s Agent

It’s early in the offseason, but the Red Sox have started to get a feel for how they can give their starting rotation an instant upgrade for next season.

During the General Managers’ Meetings in Chicago this week, Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein met with Steve Hilliard, the agent for standout right-hander John Lackey, MLB.com has confirmed.

Free agents can’t negotiate with other teams until after Nov. 20, and when that happens, the floodgates are expected to open for Lackey, considered the best free-agent starter this offseason.

The Red Sox have a preliminary interest in Lackey, and after getting a gauge for how the market will play out this offseason during the GM Meetings, the two sides will likely be in touch more frequently when other teams can get involved.-Full Story
