Sports log: Red Sox watch Bobby Abreu workout

Baseball

The Red Sox have viewed a workout by veteran major leaguer Bobby Abreu that included his taking grounders at first base. The 17-year veteran and two-time All-Star is a free agent. He turns 39 in March and is coming off a season in which he hit .242 with a .693 OPS for the Angels and Dodgers over 100 games and 257 plate appearances. The lefthanded-hitting outfielder could fill a spot on the bench for the Sox. But he has never played first base professionally. Abreu also is 18 of 87 (.207) with one home run in his career as a pinch hitter. - PETER ABRAHAM
