Multiple teams have reportedly shown interest in Toronto Blue Jays reliever Daniel Hudson and utility man Eric Sogard according to MLB Network’s Jon Morosi.

Hudson has appeared in 40 games this season posting a 5-2 record with a 2.72 ERA along with two saves in 43 innings. The 32-year-old was signed to a one-year, $1.5-million contract by the Blue Jays after he was released by the Los Angeles Angels back in March.

According to Morosi, The Red Sox have been evaluating Hudson recently as he is likely to be moved ahead of the trade deadline along with closer Ken Giles and starter Marcus Stroman.

Sogard is hitting .305/.389/.491 with 10 home runs and 30 RBIs in 70 games this season. He was signed to a minor-league deal with an invitation to Spring Training and was eventually called up on April 15.

The 33-year-old has played mainly at second base but has been used at various positions including third base, shortstop as well as left and right field.
