Waiver deadline opportunity
Many players are put through trade waivers in August leading up to the Aug. 31 deadline for postseason rosters. If a player clears waivers without being claimed, he can be traded. Boston Globe national baseball writer Nick Cafardo listed 20 players who could be put on waivers in last Sunday's notes. Possible fits for the Red Sox include Matt Garza, Randy Wolfe and Ricky Nolasco.
