Morning report: Sun is out
By Joe McDonald
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Happy Sunday from the Fort.
Is it Sunday? Kind of losing track of days already here at spring training. It’s a bright, sunny day with temperatures expected to reach the low 60s. It’s also Photo Day. Uniform personnel are sporting their pearly whites today before regular workouts begin at 10 a.m. There is no morning clubhouse access for the media today.
There will be an open house at JetBlue Park today. Ushers are already wiping down the seats and there are jump houses in the outfield for the kids.
The Red Sox will conduct a second day of live batting practice. Pitchers Jon Lester, Ryan Dempster, Rubby De La Rosa, Alfredo Aceves, John Lackey, Franklin Morales, Steven Wright, Drake Britton, Allen Webster and Chris Hernandez will all throw today.
Colleague Gordon Edes is taking a much-needed breather today, so I’ll be back later this afternoon with some updates from camp.
