Red Sox Trade Rumors: Boston Still Plans To Pursue Johnny Cueto, Cole Hamels

The Boston Red Sox were optimistic about the second half of the season, but continued struggles through the first few games after the All-Star break have them contemplating becoming sellers at the trade deadline. 

However, Peter Gammons of reports that the Sox haven’t ruled out making a run at Johnny Cueto or Cole Hamels.

Trading for Cueto seems more unlikely because he's in the last year of his contract, but they believe he could help them make a run towards a playoff spot, and that this rental period may give them an advantage when trying to sign him in free agency.
