MLB Trade Deadline: Mike Aviles, Willie Bloomquist Being Linked To Red Sox With Dustin Pedroia Out

On Monday, we've had the Red Sox linked to Royals outfielder David DeJesus and the Giants reportedly interest in Jose Guillen (for the right price).

Here's another one: Mike Aviles and Willie Bloomquist are on the Red Sox radar, according to Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star.

The Red Sox see infielder Mike Aviles and veteran utilityman Willie Bloomquist as candidates to replace injured second baseman Dustin Pedroia.

It seems to make sense since the Red Sox may need someone for up to six weeks and money isn't a problem. It's unclear what kind of compensation the Royals would be seeking for either player.

Add in Scott Podsednik being rumored to a few places and more than half of the Royals starters are viewed as available.
