Report: Red Sox interested in Twins' closer Fernando Rodney

Rodney has 19 saves and a 3.17 ERA.

The MLB trade deadline is fast approaching and the Twins, despite three straight wins, are still 10 1/2 games out of first place in the Central division. 

With that, rumors are expected to be centered around possible trade targets on the roster, and the latest involved veteran closer Fernando Rodney. According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, the Boston Red Sox are interested in Rodney, at least to the degree that the right-hander is "worth a look" for them. 

As noted by MLB Trade Rumors, the Red Sox probably don't have to give up a lot to get Rodney simply because of his age and the fact that his contract is only guaranteed through the end of the season. 

Rodney has been shaky this season with five blown saves, but overall he has a respectable 3.17 ERA and 19 saves. 

In Boston, Rodney would likely serve as a late-inning reliever because Craig Kimbrel is cemented in as the closer.
