MLB - Scoop Du Jour

The Boston Red Sox, looking to add a catcher before the July 31 non-waiver trading deadline passes, had discussions with the New York Mets about bringing catcher Rod Barajas(notes) to New England, according to WEEI.

The Sox were offering reliever Ramon Ramirez(notes) for the catcher, WEEI reports, but that now appears to be off the table since Barajas went on the disabled list Monday.

Ramirez, who has a 4.69 ERA, is making $1.55 million this year and will have salary increases the next two seasons.
