CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Red Sox are interested in free agent right-hander Kyle Lohse.
The Red Sox are taking care of their offense first, but they like Lohse as a cheaper alternative than Anibal Sanchez. The 34-year-old right-hander posted a 2.86 ERA over 211 innings this past season with the Cardinals. He declined a qualifying offer in order to test free agency, so teams would have to surrender a draft pick in order to sign him. The Angels and Dodgers have also been mentioned as possible landing spots.
