Bob Nightengale of USA Today says that Eduardo Nunez of the Giants is on the Red Sox radar. That would make a good fit, as the Red Sox could use a first baseman and Nunez is hitting .295 with four home runs and 26 RBI in 69 games. Last night he hit a walkoff single to push the Giants over the Indians.

The Giants, out of contention, have made Nunez -- who they picked up at last year’s deadline from Minnesota -- available. But they’re also being careful with him, keeping him out of today’s lineup:

That’s doubtful to give the Red Sox serious pause -- Nunez has had minor hamstring issues all year -- but there’s no sense in pushing it if you’re San Francisco.
