FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Red Sox are in "serious discussions" with free agent right-hander Ryan Dempster.
While the two sides are negotiating, Rosenthal hears that there's no deal yet and that it's possible Dempster could sign elsewhere. Last we heard, the veteran right-hander had declined a two-year, $25 million offer from the club and was holding out for three years. It's not clear whether either side has budged. Per Sean McAdam of CSNNewEngland.com, the Red Sox are also looking at Anibal Sanchez, Kyle Lohse, Francisco Liriano and Shaun Marcum.
