The Boston Red Sox are interested in signing free-agent OF Carlos Beltran (Cardinals), but they view him as a "tough squeeze" onto their roster. The club already has three strong corner outfielders and are facing the potential loss of OF Jacoby Ellsbury in free agency. The Red Sox would prefer not to move OF Shane Victorino to center field. Boston would have to surrender a draft pick in order to sign Beltran, too. According to some sources, the Red Sox have been more aggressive in pursuing Beltran than the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles.

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino hit from the left side of the plate against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series Thursday, Oct. 17, for the first time since Sept. 3. He went 0-for-3 and didn't hit a ball out of the infield in the game, prompting him to move to the right side in his final two at-bats. He's hitting .095 (2-for-21) in the series. "I thought I'd give it a try but it wasn't what I expected," Victorino said. "It just wasn't there. I saw the ball well, but I just wasn't comfortable with the swing and the whole approach. I felt as if I was trying to rush to get to everything. It's hard to change, especially since I hadn't done it for two months."
