Report: Sox scouting Rockies catcher
By Joe McDonald
PHILADELPHIA -- The Denver Post reported the Red Sox are tracking the Triple-A progress of catcher Chris Iannetta in case the Colorado Rockies make him available.
Iannetta, a native of Providence, signed a three-year extension with the Rockies worth $8.35 million last offseason and he’s spent the majority of this season at Triple-A. He’s played a total of eight games with Colorado and 15 with Colorado Springs.
A baseball source with knowledge of the report tells ESPNBoston.com that there’s nothing going on.
