– The Boston Red Sox are considering first baseman Adam LaRoche as a fall back plan in case they can't sign Mike Napoli reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. LaRoche hit .271/.343/.510 with 33 HR's, 100 RBI's and a .361 wOBA in 647 plate appearances for the Nationals in 2012.
– Yesterday, reports indicated that the Dodgers could be after catcher A.J. Pierzynski, but Dodgers officials say that a run for Pierzynski would be unlikely (via Heyman). The veteran catcher remains a possibility for the Yankees who failed to re-sign Russell Martin. Pierzynski is coming off his best offensive season in his career. In 520 plate appearances for the White Sox in 2012, Pierzynski hit .278/.326/.501 with 27 HR's, 77 RBI's and a .351 wOBA.
– Infielder Ryan Raburn has been drawing interest from at least six teams according to Jayson Stark of ESPN. The Rays, Marlins, Braves and Rangers are among the teams interested in Raburn. The Tigers released the 31-year old infielder earlier this month.

The New York Yankees watched Russell Martin sign a two year deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday, thus officially beginning their search for a new starting catcher. The Yankees have a few prospects in the minor leagues expected to handle the everyday duties behind the plate in the near future, including Austin Romine, but, as with Jesus Montero, New York appears in no rush...

Missing from the photo, of course, is Adam LaRoche, who Davey invited to the first annual Davey Johnson Celebrity Invitational golf tournament in Orlando this weekend seemingly with the sole purpose of forcing LaRoche and Mike Rizzo (also in attendance) to be in the same room to expedite...
