Report: Red Sox Interested in Gio Gonzalez

The Red Sox are “extremely high” on Oakland A’s left-handed starter Gio Gonzalez, according to a report from ESPN’s Gordon Edes.

Edes said that Red Sox GM Ben Cherington acknowledged the Sox weren’t expected to sign either C.J. Wilson or Mark Buehrle, but they may target Gonzalez, who is emerging as one of the top left-handed starters in the American League.

The 26-year-old Gonzalez went 16-12 with a 3.12 ERA last season. He had an eyebrow-raising number of walks (91), but he also made a significant number of batters miss, accumulating 197 strikeouts in 202 innings.

Edes speculates the Red Sox would need to trade a package of top prospects similar to the haul the Rays received last off-season when they traded Matt Garza to the Cubs.
