Red Sox deal for Harden may be off

At one point Saturday night, Rich Harden seemed to be on his way to Boston.

By the end of the night, according to reports out of Oakland, A's general manager Billy Beane told Harden he was going nowhere.

Harden told reporters that he was told by Beane that he would be starting on Tuesday -- for Oakland.

Earlier in the evening, sources confirmed to CBSSports.com that the A's were close to a deal to send Harden to the Red Sox. The A's were to receive first baseman Lars Andersen and a player to be named in exchange for Harden.

It's not clear what happened between then and the end of the A's game with the Twins. Even late Saturday night, the websites of the San Francisco Chronicle and the Boston Globe still had stories about a completed trade.

The oft-injured Harden has made five starts for the A's this year, going 2-1 with a 4.30 ERA.

The Red Sox didn't think they'd need to trade for a starting pitcher this summer, but all five of their starters have missed at least one start because of a health issue. Daisuke Matsuzaka is out for the year after Tommy John surgery, and Clay Buchholz is traveling to California next week to see a back specialist.

With Jon Lester and Josh Beckett atop the rotation, the Red Sox could afford to add someone who could fit in behind them. If Harden can stay healthy, he should be able to do that. John Lackey, Tim Wakefield and Andrew Miller have been filling out the rotation behind Lester and Beckett.
