News
Rodriguez pitched 5.2 innings in a game for High-A Salem on the back fields of the Red Sox's training facility in Fort Myers on Wednesday, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

Rodriguez tossed 85 pitches (59 for strikes) and struck out eight while walking one. He admitted pitching to minor leaguers is not the same as facing major leaguers, but was pleased to throw all of his pitches. With David Price (elbow) expected to begin the regular season on the disabled list and the uncertainty surrounding Drew Pomeranz (triceps), Rodriguez is certain to start the season in the rotation. Once there, his performance will determine how long he'll remain.

News
Bogaerts is hitting sixth in his Grapefruit League return Thursday from the World Baseball Classic, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

Manager John Farrell said he likes Thursday's lineup construction, which may mean Bogaerts will bat sixth most of the time in 2017. For all his skills across the board at the dish, The X-Man may not get as much out of them hitting farther down the order -- especially repeating the 115 runs he scored last year -- though this lineup runs deep, which should help his opportunities. Even with a slight downgrade, Bogaerts remains a useful core player for mixed league clubs.

Injuries
Arm - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 3/21/17)
News
Thornburg (arm) threw 20 pitches in the bullpen with a hitter standing in Tuesday and will pitch in a game Friday, the Boston Globe's Pete Abraham reports.

It was thought that he would get into a minor league game Tuesday, but he wound up just throwing a bullpen session. Thornburg still hopes to be ready for the start of the season, but it is by no means a certainty. Joe Kelly would presumably slot into the setup role if Thornburg misses time.

News
Benintendi could hit second to start the 2017 regular season, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

After previously considering Benintendi to hit third, manager John Farrell has shifted and may put the hyped prospect second ahead of Mookie Betts, which would help Benintendi see plenty of pitches to hit. Though some questions exist over what the dynasty league gem can offer out of the gate, the 22-year-old will occupy a prime spot in what again should be one of the league's best lineups. His 2017 line likely will contribute significantly across all five standard offensive fantasy categories, which makes him a valuable middle-rounds mixed league pick for single-year players.

News
Abad has rejoined Boston's spring training and is scheduled to throw two innings Tuesday, Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Abad fared well for Team Domincan Republic, pitching 2.1 scoreless innings. The left-hander returns to the Red Sox knowing a roster spot isn't yet secured. Fellow lefties Robby Scott and Edgar Olmos have pitched well during the spring. Abad's contract will play a role in the decision of which player opens the season on the major league roster. Scott is on the 40-man roster already while the non-rostered Olmos would need to be added to the 40-man. Boston can preserve as much organizational depth as possible by keeping Abad and stashing the others at Triple-A Pawtucket.

News
Manager John Farrell said Leon remains the starting catcher heading into the regular season, Rob Bradford of WEEI reports.

Leon has turned things around a bit after a recent slump and is 6-for-23 this spring, though that comes with an underwhelming .553 OPS, without an extra-base hit. Still, Farrell likes what Leon brings with his overall game, and, for as questionable as its sustainability for 2017 may be, the 28-year-old hit .310/.369/.476 with seven home runs in 283 plate appearances last year. Fantasy players in two-catcher mixed leagues could do worse when scouring for a late-round, No. 2 receiver.

News
Price (elbow) may be out until May at the earliest, Evan Drellich of Comcast Sportsnet New England reports.

It's important to note that the Red Sox have not offered up a timetable for Price, but he will need to go through the process of getting fully stretched out before he's cleared to join the Boston rotation. Price is scheduled to be evaluated again by team doctors Tuesday.

News
Pomeranz was confident that he'll make his scheduled start Friday after throwing a bullpen session Tuesday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Pomeranz didn't speak with reporters but gave a thumbs-up from a distance when asked how the session went. The left-hander appears to have avoided any serious injury after cutting short his previous spring start with tightness in his triceps. After throwing just four innings all spring, he intends to ramp up to four Friday. He's on a pretty tight schedule, but with Boston not needing a fifth starter until April 8, Pomeranz could build up enough pitches.

Christian Vazquez, #7

News
Vazquez caught for Eduardo Rodriguez in a minor league game Wednesday and helped the left-hander by throwing out two runners trying to steal second base, Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

These caught base-stealers don't register on Vazquez's official spring stat log, but the backstop has thrown out four of five would-be base-stealers in Grapefruit League play. His ability to control the running game and framing skills are enough to overcome whatever hitting holes he has. If the Red Sox get into a position where they're getting unacceptable offensive production out of the catching position, and considering calling up Blake Swihart to replace either a Vazquez or Sandy Leon, the organization would view Vazquez as the more long-term option.

News
Sale allowed two runs on four hits without a walk and struck out 10 over six innings Tuesday against the Yankees, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

Sale was on form right from the start, striking out multiple hitters in each of his first four frames, including three punchouts in the second. The left-hander worked ahead in the count, keeping Yankee hitters off guard with his pitch mix, and got his pitch count up to 86. While he won't be able to pitch like this every time he starts, Sale is certainly capable of this kind of performance whenever he's handed the ball.

News
Kendrick allowed two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four over five innings Monday.

Kendrick has been the surprise of training camp and is in a position to open the season as part of Boston's rotation if Drew Pomeranz (triceps) is not ready to go when camp breaks. Pomeranz is expected to pitch Friday, but he may not have enough time to build up his pitch count. Kendrick, a non-roster invitee, will be around even if he has to begin the season in the minors. He doesn't have an opportunity to opt out of his contract until June 15.
