FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Red Sox have expressed interest in the Marlins' Yunel Escobar.

The A's, Rays, Yankees and Cubs are also thought to have interest in working out a trade. Escobar batted just .253/.300/.344 in 2012 and received a suspension in September for displaying a homophobic slur on his eyeblack, but he's displayed flashes of great potential in the past. And the shortstop market is thin as always.
