After the Red Sox traded Marco Scutaro, many believed Ben Cherington did it so he could target a starting pitcher. Rumors swirled that starter Roy Oswalt could be high on the Red Sox priority list.

Oswalt is trying to make a comeback after suffering from a back injury during the 2011 season.
If Oswalt doesn't accept, ESPN's Jim Bowden reported on Twitter that the Red Sox have made an offer to free agent pitcher Edwin Jackson.
