The Red Sox haven't been able to strike a deal with Jon Lester just yet.
Have they been looking for a replacement for their ace?
According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the Red Sox have been scouting Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels recently.
Hamels is scheduled to make an average of $22.5 million each season for the next four years.
The 30-year-old has a career 102-79 record with a 3.35 ERA in nine seasons for the Philadelphia Phillies.
