FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Good afternoon from the Fort, where the 2014 Boston Red Sox are packed and ready to leave on a flight bound for Baltimore and the regular season.
Designated hitter David Ortiz is taking a second day off in a row versus the Minnesota Twins on Saturday because of a sore right calf, but he is good to go for Monday in Baltimore, manager John Farrell said. Ortiz finished spring training with a .054 average (2-for-37) with the two hits being a double and a home run. He had 13 strikeouts and drew three walks.
It rained here overnight, but by 11 a.m., the grounds crew had removed the tarp from the infield. Here are today's lineups:
RHP Mike Pelfrey
RHP Jake Peavy
