Peter Gammons reports that the Red Sox and Dodgers have been “aggressive” on free agent right-hander Alexi Ogando.
He’s obviously a gamble. Ogando suffered a sprained UCL in his right elbow last June, ending his season. He had compiled a 6.84 ERA and a 22/15 K/BB ratio in 25 innings of relief prior to the injury. On top of that, an American League executive told Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe the other day that Ogando‘s medical records “don’t look great.”
So, one assumes that “aggressive” here is a relative term.
