Report: LaRoche about to be traded to Red Sox?


Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports that “the Pirates’ clubhouse is abuzz with word that a trade involving first baseman Adam LaRoche is imminent.”

LaRoche was spotted taking batting practice this morning, but is not in
the lineup for this afternoon’s game against the Brewers and Kovacevic
notes that the Pirates have issued no denials about a possible deal
being completed.

Initial speculation centered around the Giants, but Kovacevic now
writes that “LaRoche has been traded to the Boston Red Sox.” Stay
