Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Red Sox | Interested in Luke Hochevar

The Boston Red Sox have been scouting Kansas City Royals P Luke Hochevar, but have not engaged the Royals in trade talks, according to sources. The Royals, however, aren't ready to sell off important pieces such as SP Ervin Santana. "Our philosophy isn't going to change just because we're six games under (.500)," general manager Dayton Moore said. "We're not going to back off."

Fantasy Tip: If the BoSox were to land Hochevar, it's unclear how they'd use him, since they need both rotation and bullpen help at the moment. Hochevar would probably be more fantasy-relevant if he entered Boston's rotation.
