Trade rumors: Tavarez, Aardsma, Lopez, Lugo

ESPN’s Jayson Stark has some Red Sox rumors:

  • The Brewers are also interested in Julian Tavarez, but are not quite ready to pay the price for him.
  • Bartolo Colon was indeed throwing 93-94 mph and not 97 mph in his last start for Pawtucket. It was still a very good start.
  • David Aardsma and Javier Lopez were also dangled, but there didn’t seem to be any takers.
  • The Sox were asking for a prospect or a left-handed reliever, indicating that the front office isn’t too jazzed with Lopez as their LOOGY.
  • Julio Lugo probably won’t be tradeable until after the 2008 season, despite the apparent readiness of Jed Lowrie.

And some other updates on players the Sox could have interest in:
