The Red Sox may not be trying too hard to get Giancarlo Stanton, but that doesn’t mean they’re not trying to add a power hitter. According to FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman on Twitter, the Red Sox are one of multiple teams in “active talks” with the White Sox to acquire first baseman Jose Abreu. The Sox were among the contenders for Abreu to sign as an international free agent in 2013. While he has not been as prolific a power hitter as Stanton, Abreu would certainly provide some much-needed thump to the middle of the Red Sox lineup.
