Free agents the Red Sox might pursue
Rafael Soriano, closer, Tampa Bay Rays
2010 stats: 3-2, 1.73 ERA, 62.1 IP, 57 Ks, 14 walks, 45 saves
With Soriano's free agency coinciding with a production decline from current Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon, the hard-throwing righthander may be an interesting target for Boston. Soriano was dominant this season, leading the American League in saves with a career-best 0.80 WHIP for the AL East winning Rays.
