Not so fast on that trade for Rich Harden.
Hours after agreeing late last night on a deal to acquire Harden from the Oakland Athletics, the Red Sox backed out after reviewing the right-hander’s recent medical information, a baseball source confirmed early this morning. Harden, meanwhile, told reporters in Oakland that he expects to start Tuesday night for the Athletics.
Harden, 29, has been on the disabled list 10 times in his career, most recently during the first three months of this season because of a strained muscle under his right arm. Regardless, it’s common for teams to exchange players’ medicals before completing a trade, and the Red Sox weren’t confident Harden will be able to make enough starts to contribute down the stretch, the source said.
