The Red Sox are still talking with the Rockies about a deal for reliever Julian Tavarez. News of the talks, first reported in the Denver Post last week, have not died out, according to a major league source with knowledge of the situation.

The Sox traded Bryan Corey today to the Padres. With Bartolo Colon (oblique) making progress in his rehab assignment in Pawtucket, where he hit 97 m.p.h. on the radar gun, the Sox might be trying to find a spot for Colon.

Tavarez is 0-1 with a 7.15 ERA, but it's been difficult for the Sox to get work for Tavarez. He pitched an inning last Wednesday, but hadn't worked before April 24 before that.
