It sure didn’t take long for the hot stove to heat up.

Ken Rosental of is speculating that the Boston Red Sox could pursue Dan Uggla after the Marlins’ second basemen rejected Florida’s four-year, $48 million contract extension. 

Uggla is coming off his fourth consecutive season of at least 30 home runs and owns a career OPS of .837. He can also play third base and the outfield. He’s an enticing option for any team looking for a big bat at one of those positions. The Red Sox certainly qualify with the expected loss of third basemen Adrian Beltre to free agency.
