Report: Red Sox OF Allen Craig unlikely to be traded before opener
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Though at least three teams have inquired about Red Sox outfielder Allen Craig this spring, the outfielder is not expected to be traded before Opening Day, the Boston Globe reports.

Teams are reportedly looking to buy low on Craig with the Red Sox dealing with a surplus of outfield depth, but evaluators have seen improvements in Craig this spring and could be first-base insurance for the potential departure of Mike Napoli after the season.

Craig has hit .262/.347/.381 with one home run and 13 strikeouts in 42 at-bats this spring.

Report: Giants making no progress in trade talks for Red Sox's Craig
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

While Red Sox outfielder/first baseman Allen Craig is having a productive spring, it doesn't seem the Giants interest in trading for him has increased. There has been no progress made in trade talks with the Giants, according to FOX Sports reporter Jon Morosi.

Craig, who is on track to open the season as a reserve bat for Boston, is batting .278 (10 for 36) with one home run, two doubles and seven RBI in 12 spring games. He also has 12 strikeouts and three walks.

Allen Craig still has his old RBI ability in Red Sox camp
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Red Sox outfielder Allen Craig is showing his old ability to drive in runs, which should earn him a role on the team.

Craig went one for three on Tuesday with three RBI, including a bases-clearing double to right center.

"It feels good to hit the ball to right-center," Craig said, according to MLB.com's Ian Browne. "I've typically been pretty good at hitting the ball there in my career, and I put a good swing on it."

"He's always had a knack for the RBI situation," manager John Farrell said. "It was good to see him drive a baseball with men on. I think we're seeing the consistency of the swings gradually come along, and it's just a marked improvement from where he was when he came to us last year."

Red Sox to trim down loaded outfield soon
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox are expected to trim down its crowded outfield soon, with less than two weeks before Opening Day, according to MLB.com on Tuesday.

"We have to take these remaining days in camp here and determine what's best for us as an organization," said Farrell. "I'm not suggesting there's player movement anywhere, but there's only going to be three [starting] spots."

At this point, it appears as if Hanley Ramirez and Mookie Betts have left and center field locked up, respectively. Daniel Nava, Shane Victorino, Rusney Castillo and Allen Craig are all in the mix for the final spots.

"And there's six guys -- well, there will be five guys in that group to handle those three spots, with two guys coming off the bench. What that means for the final Opening Day roster remains to be seen.

"We're just trying to get more exposure to Rusney in right field; we need to get a better gauge on Vic's durability, if we can, over the coming days. We acknowledged from the first day in camp, the outfield, there's going to be a lot of focus on our outfield.

"That pretty much hasn't changed, but what we've seen are some really encouraging things. And that's how quickly Rusney's come back and shown decent timing at the plate [and] what Mookie's done in center field speaks for itself."

Red Sox's Farrell expecting Craig to be on roster at start of season
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Monday he is expecting Allen Craig to be on the opening day roster, per The Boston Herald. Farrell added Craig understands he might be a part-time player in 2015.

"We fully expect him to be on this team," Farrell said. "There's nothing to expect otherwise. He's the one in particular that we just said, 'Let's get the appropriate number of at-bats that spring training would provide,' and we'll go from there. His attitude has been great. He understands the situation that he's in. He understands that, coming off last year, we had to make decisions to improve the team, and he's got to compete for at-bats. He's more than willing to embrace that."
