07:36 AM ET 01.17 | Only about a month removed from pitchers and catchers reporting, the Red Sox may have to make a move or two in order to settle roster depth. Mike Carp, who found tremendous success in limited playing time with the Red Sox in 2013, could still be traded before Opening Day, according to a source. Carp is 27, an age often considered the beginning of a hitter's prime, and hit .296 with an .885 OPS in 216 at-bats in 2013. When the Red Sox signed first baseman Mike Napoli to a two-year deal earlier this offseason, it became less likely that Carp would have an every-day role in Boston. He was an important piece off the bench last season and the Red Sox value him as a depth option, but there are still teams looking for a first baseman who might be able to use Carp in a more regular role.

They should not trade him unless they get a valuable player; he is great bench help for the Sox.
