Red Sox interested in reliever Guerrier

Matt Guerrier The Red Sox are interested in reliever Matt Guerrier, WEEI.com's Alex Speier writes .

With the Twins, Guerrier led the American League in appearances in 2008 and 2009 and went 5-7 with a  3.17 ERA in 74 games in 2010.

A 32-year old right-hander, Guerrier was a Type A free agent, but the Twins didn't offer him arbitration, so any team that signs him will not give up a draft pick. Guerrier made $3.15 million last season, avoiding arbitration.

In 71 innings, Guerrier struck out 42 and walked 22, while allowing 56 hits and 28 runs (25 earned). Opponents hit .219/.285/.340 against Guerrier, right-handers hit .210/.264/.347 against him, while lefties were more successful, hitting .236/.324/.326 against him, but only one of the seven homers hit off him came from a left-handed batter.

Guerrier is represented by Joe Bick, who is also the agent for Boston's Kevin Youkilis.
