Biceps - Out until at least late March (Updated - 3/23/15)
News
Red Sox starting pitcher Joe Kelly (biceps) will pitch in a minor-league game Friday and will be re-evaluated after the outing, MLB.com reports.

"And see how he responds," manager John Farrell said. "Not only in the game situation where there's going to be added adrenaline, probably increased velocity, but the up and down three times [Sunday], he felt fine coming out of that. There were no restrictions as far as pitches thrown or just getting warm multiple times. I don't anticipate him not being ready at this point, but we're just keeping the other scenario as an option."

The Red Sox could opt to carry four starters and eight relievers at the beginning of the season if the team determines Kelly needs to open the season on the disabled list.

News
Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello tossed five strikeouts over five innings Monday against the Cardinals before the rain came. He gave up two runs on six hits with one walk, leaving him to work on consistency with his pitches leading up to Opening Day, reports ESPN.com.

"I feel strong," he said. "My sequences, the way I’m thinking on the mound, is there. The consistency of the pitches isn't, again, where I want it to be. That's obviously why we're here in spring training. I've got to keep working on the consistency, but I like the sequences."

One thing he felt was improved on was his changeup.

"The changeup was a lot better today and that's the one pitch I was really working on between starts," Porcello said. "There are spots where everything is really good and working together and there are spots where it's a little inconsistent. Overall, I feel strong and healthy and ready to go."

The Red Sox announced several cuts from major-league camp Thursday, included in the group were top pitching prospect Henry Owens and infielder/outfielder Garin Cecchini

Owens, who is considered the Red Sox's second-best prospect by Baseball America, was reassigned to minor-league camp. Cecchini, who is considered the Red Sox's 10th-best prospect, was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket. Manager John Farrell said Cecchini will play third base, first base and left field at Pawtucket.

The Red Sox also optioned outfielder Bryce Brentz, pitcher Heath Hembree and pitcher Zeke Spruill to Triple-A, while pitcher Mitchell Boggs was released.

One look at Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts' spring stat line and it's easy to see he is having a nice run offensively. He is batting .471 (16 for 34) with one home run, two triples, two RBI, six doubles and nine runs in 11 games.

However, what doesn't show up in the stat column is Betts blasting doubles off the mini Green Monster at JetBlue Park against Mets ace Matt Harvey and Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller. Betts also had a triple off Mets starting pitcher prospect Noah Syndergaard.

"Goddarn, man, he's on time from a hitting standpoint," Red Sox manager John Farrell said of Betts, per the Boston Herald. "He gets himself on time, he's able to handle multiple types of pitches in the strike zone, and he's facing some pretty damn good pitching in spring training here. Albeit spring training, but he's facing some good stuff and has handled them well."

Although, it seems Farrell is even more impressed with how the former infielder has transitioned to center field, where he is competing for the starting job.

"It's probably been more on how the reads and routes in center field would develop, and particularly balls over his head," Farrell said. "We purposely positioned him more shallow in center field just to give him a chance to see some balls over his head better. So, the defensive side of center field has been where we've seen that progression."

News
Red Sox manager John Farrell appears to be less sold closer Koji Uehara's status for Opening Day then he did a week ago when his closer suffered a left hamstring strain, according to MLB.com.

"I think with each passing day he's not in a game, there's growing concern, concern in the sense, 'Will he be ready for April 6?' And we're just working through that," said Farrell.

Uehara could throw a bullpen session at some point this week, but it appears as if the Red Sox are taking a cautious approach with their right-handed reliever. Edward Mujica and Alexi Ogando are candidates to fill in for Uehara in the ninth while he remains sidelined.

After a slow start to spring training, Red Sox left fielder Hanley Ramirez is finding his rhythm at the plate. Ramirez, who hit .182 through his first eight spring games, is batting .625 (5 for 8) over his last three games, raising his spring average to .300.

Ramirez clubbed his first spring home run Sunday -- a drive to dead center field. He also had five RBI and now has seven RBI in his last three games.

“I've been feeling comfortable with what I’m doing to get ready," Ramirez said, per ESPN. “I tried to slow my swing down, hit hard ground balls to second. Then when you’re feeling like you’re right there, let it go now and see what happens."

Red Sox starting pitcher Justin Masterson threw 80 pitches in five innings during a minor-league game Wednesday, per the Boston Herald. He allowed four runs on four hits in the first inning before tossing four scoreless innings to finish off his outing.

"I need about two or three more (starts), and I think I'll be right," said Masterson, who is on track to start the third game of the season (April 9) against the Phillies. "This was a great one to go into next and to build on for the next two."

Masterson is 1-1 with a 5.11 ERA in four spring starts. He has five strikeouts and five walks in 12 1/3 innings.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Thursday he should have a better idea by the weekend about the Opening Day status of catcher Christian Vazquez (elbow) and closer Koji Uehara (hamstring), per The Boston Globe.

Farrell added Vazquez will catch a minor-league game Friday. Vazquez said Thursday he has no doubt he will be ready by Opening Day.

"I'm going to be ready," he said, per WEEI.com.

Uehara will throw off flat ground Thursday. Farrell hopeful Uehara will throw a bullpen session this weekend.

News
Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino was not a happy man Thursday.

Victorino spent time with the media Thursday lashing out at sports radio hosts Michael Felger and Tony Massarotti for suggesting Victorino was advocating trading top prospects for Phillies ace Cole Hamels, in his comments to the Philadelphia Daily News.

"All I said, a question was asked of me about getting Cole Hamels," Victorino said, per the Boston Herald. "I said, 'Hey, if you can go get Cole, I'll be all for it.' Nothing against everybody in this clubhouse. I said from Day 1, I'll be fine with what we have. We can go win with what we have. But if you can add another element of a guy who's been there, I said, why wouldn't you? And that's the part for me is they took it obviously as me, and the names that were attached to these (rumors), I never mentioned anybody's name. I said, 'If you can give up two or three prospects, could be anybody, could be a second-, third-tier guy, my whole career I've watched that."

Although Victorino didn't mention any players by name, the radio hosts accused Victorino of lobbying the Red Sox to trade Mookie Betts, who is competing for the starting job in center field this spring. Felger also accused Victorino of "throwing your young players under the bus."

"You have a 34-year-old, breaking-down outfielder whose job is potentially going to be taken by whom? Mookie Betts, or by default, Rusney Castillo," Massarotti said. "And so who are we talking about, potentially, in this trade? Mookie Betts. So is that the deal? Mookie Betts is going to take his job, (and Victorino says), 'Hey, get the kid out of here, because we can win now if we get Hamels.'"

Victorino seemed really upset Betts' name was mentioned since he is a big fan of the 22-year-old outfielder.

"If there's one person that's an advocate of that individual who was named in the article, Mookie Betts, it's me," Victorino said. "I don't have any fear or feel like there's competition that I've got to get him shipped out of here. That's the part for me, where individuals put words in your mouth, that sit behind a mic and say something, you know where I'll be. I'll be more than happy to talk to you about it. But don't get behind a mic and be a coward and try to put words in my mouth, because not once in that article did I mention anybody's name."

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.
