Wells to return to Padres

Nothing official yet, but a highly respected source with close knowledge of one of the teams involved in the transaction has confirmed that the Padres and Red Sox are working out the final touches on the deal. The Sox originally wanted Akinora Otsuka, but the Padres have declined to deal Otsuka or Scott Linebrink. They're working on minor leaguers now, although Sean Burroughs could be a possibility as well should he be willing to move to second. The Sox were interested in Mark Loretta, but the Padres would only move him if the Red Sox offered more than just Wells in return. The Beckett deal pushed this a bit on the back burner for the Red Sox but the deal is all but done pending a final decision by the Red Sox.
