Red Sox Interested in Ryan Spilborghs?

According to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, three teams, including the Red Sox, have inquired about the services of outfielder Ryan Spilborghs. The Rockies called up OF Carlos Gonzalez, which could make Spilborghs expendable. They can replace Spilborghs with the recently demoted Matt Murton.

Spilborghs is a righthanded hitter and reserve outfielder making just $415,000, so he’s an attractive commodity on the free market. The Sox, Phillies, and Tigers are reportedly interested, which could drive his price up even higher.

This season, the 29-year-old Spilborghs is hitting .259 with five homers and 26 RBI. He has a .294 career batting average over five major league seasons, all with the Rockies.
