The Red Sox still have not settled their vacancy at first base.

Although they are still talking with Mike Napoli, they are also looking into other options.

Along with some interest in Michael Morse, according to Rob Bradford of WEEI, the Red Sox have also "shown interest" in Lyle Overbay and Casey Kotchman. He did clarify that there is "nothing active" in regards to a possible deal.

The 30-year-old Kotchman hit .229 with 12 home runs and 55 RBI last season for the Cleveland Indians. He previously spent time with the Red Sox during the 2009 season.

As for Overbay, he hit .259 with 2 home runs and 10 RBI last season with the Diamondbacks and Braves.
