Marlon Byrd Trade Rumors: Cubs OF Could Be With Red Sox By Sunday, According To Report

The Boston Red Sox are in need of some serious reinforcements, in short order. Their awful start to the 2012 season has been compounded by injuries to outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury and Jason Repko. The team has no major league-ready options at Triple A Pawtucket and Carl Crawford is still rehabbing from an injury stemming from last season. They need outfield help in a hurry and they may be getting it sooner than you might think.

On Saturday, it was reported that the Sox were nearing a deal with the Chicago Cubs that would bring Marlon Byrd to Boston. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that Byrd could be in Boston as soon as Sunday.

Byrd has also had a slow start to the 2012 season but would be a definite asset to the Red Sox.
