Red Sox may still pursue Masahiro Tanaka

Masahiro Tanaka did not visit with any Red Sox officials during his visit to Los Angeles last week, but the team has had conversations with the agent for the prized Japanese pitcher, Casey Close, according to a team source.

Late last week, Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino issued a “no comment” on whether the Red Sox had met with the 25-year-old righthander, who went 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA for the Rakuten Golden Eagles this past season in the Nippon Professional Baseball League in Japan.
