Free agents the Red Sox might pursue
Jayson Werth, outfielder, Philadelphia Phillies
2010 stats: .296/.388/.532 SLG/ 27 HR/85 RBI
Werth, who mauls lefthanded pitching, set career-highs in almost every single major hitting category in 2010. The Red Sox have reportedly contacted Werth's agent, indicating at least a preliminary interest in the outfielder. He's turning 32 next year and, with Scott Boras as agent, will be looking for his first major payday.
