Update On Free Agent Relievers

While the Red Sox main focus remains to be centered around the bullpen, the Yankees, Rays, Blue Jays, White Sox, Orioles and Cubs appear to have shifted their focus to adding relievers as well.  Here are a few updates from the reliever market:

With all of these names now likely off the board, the Red Sox targets get thinner and thinner by the minute.  While they are still in discussions with Dan Wheeler, they still seem likely to add another reliever, preferably a left-handed one.  They also remain very interested in former Twins reliever Brian Fuentes as their prime lefty target. 

The Red Sox could also be interested in Mariners reliever David Aardsma, according to Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe.  Aardsma pitched for the Red Sox in 2008, and did put up an impressive 3.45 ERA for the Mariners in 2010 serving as the team's closer. 

The Red Sox have already added former Oriole Matt Albers to fill a presumable mop-up role in the bullpen and Lenny DiNardo, who will likely give AAA Pawtucket some extra depth. 

There is still a lot of work the Sox need to do on their bullpen and little time to do it.
