Sox looking at Padilla

The Red Sox have been one of the teams looking at free-agent righty Vicente Padilla in the Nicaraguan Winter League according to the newspaper El Nuevo Diario.

Padilla, who last pitched for the Dodgers but has been beset with injuries, is reportedly throwing 95-96 mph again. When healthy, the 10-year vet, who has pitched for the D-Backs, Rangers, Phillies and Dodgers, has very good stuff.

Padilla is predominantly a starter but could be used out of the bullpen.
