De Aza might have some value, assuming he remembers how to run bases. The Yankees could be a good trading partner, or the Reds, or the Giants, depending on what you can get.
De Aza seems to have the skillset, defensive flexibility, and stamina of a 4th outfielder, so yes, I think the Sox might be wise to move him, although, the Yankees and Reds may each have a hole in their outfields opened up this off-season depending on how free agency shakes out.
