Red Sox are interested in Carlos Beltran

The Red Sox have made contact with free agent outfielder Carlos Beltran, according to a team source, as they continue with their outfield permutations in the event of losing Jacoby Ellsbury as a free agent.

Beltran, 36, who played against Boston in the World Series for the Cardinals, has also drawn interest from the Yankees, Orioles, and Phillies, and there may be others.
