Quick mid-day notes from the AL East

A few nuggets from elsewhere in the American League East…

The Red Sox are reportedly interested in Tino Martinez to fill their hitting coach vacancy. A source told ESPN Boston that the Red Sox have already had some discussions with Martinez. This would be a good place to insert a joke about Boston also needing Martinez to play first base.

The Rays are believed to be one of the front-runners to land Justin Upton. Of course, they first need Upton’s brother B.J. to decline his qualifying offer. Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rays don’t have enough money for both Uptons.

• The Blue Jays made a couple of moves today. They acquired reliever Jeremy Jeffress from the Royals, and they signed free agent infielder Maicer Izturis to a three-year deal.
