Rick Porcello already working out at spring training facility
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

New Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello, acquired in a December trade, is already working out at the team's spring training facility in Fort Myers, Fla. Pitchers and catchers don't report for more than two weeks.

Porcello can be a free agent after this season but that's not his focus, reports MLB.com.

"Just getting off to a good start and locking in and having a good year is what's important," Porcello said recently. "Obviously the money is a huge benefit of playing this game, but for me, the most important thing is to make sure that I play well. I don't care how much money you make. If you're not playing well, and you're a competitive person, then you're not happy."

Porcello went 15-13 with a 3.43 ERA for the Tigers last season. "At the age of 26 and coming off of a 15-win season, Porcello could be positioned to have a big year for a team that, at least on paper, lacks a true ace," the report said.

Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello not ready to sign extension
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Having just signed a one-year contract, which will be his last year of arbitration, Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello said now is not the time to discuss signing a contract before he becomes a free agent afer the 2015 season, reports MassLive.com.

"I just got here and met the guys last night so I think it's premature for that," Porcello said. "I'm just trying to settle in and fit in with everybody, get to know the staff and the guys."

The Red Sox acquired Porcello in a trade with the Tigers in December and if he equals his 2014 season, when he went 15-13 with a 3.43 ERA, he could be in line for a big payday.

"It's always strange, at least for me, because growing up you play baseball because you love playing the sport," Porcello said. "And then the money start gets thrown around and obviously for somebody, from a personal financial standpoint, that's a big opportunity and big thing to look at. But for me, over the course of my career, no matter how much money I've made I'm not happy unless I'm playing well."

Porcello added that he will not let his next contract distract him from performing to the best of his ability in 2015.

"I think obviously the money is a huge benefit of playing this game. But for me the most important thing is playing well," he said. "I don't care how much money you've made if you're not playing well you're not happy, if you're a competitive person and care about it."
