Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Red Sox made multiple offers for Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista at last month's baseball winter meetings.

Rosenthal says the offers came after Jayson Werth signed with the Nationals but before the Red Sox closed their deal with Carl Crawford.

According to the report, the Blue Jays were not enthusiastic about trading Bautista, who led the majors with 54 homers last year and has one year of arbitration left before he becomes a free agent.
