Matthew Cerrone: The Red Sox would like to sign a top free-agent starting pitcher, then get another arm by trading OF Yoenis C?spedes, according to?people connected to the team.

In regards to the Mets, though, I don't think they've ever been eager to trade for Cespedes, who is due $10.5 million next year, after which he can become a free agent. And at this point, with Michael Cuddyer on the roster, Cespedes is not what the Mets need, especially if he will cost Jon Niese and a pitching prospect, such as Noah Syndergaard.

That said, if I were Alderson, I'd get a conference call going with the Red Sox?and Rangers.
