Around the Grapefruit League
Boston Red Sox: Red Sox ace Curt Schilling, making his second spring start, worked on his changeup, a pitch he might add to his repertoire this season, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said.
Schilling picked up the win after pitching 3 1/3 innings against the Twins. He walked one, struck out one and gave up two hits while throwing 48 pitches. He surrendered a solo homer to Michael Cuddyer in the fourth inning before leaving the game. He was unavailable for comment afterward.
