Red Sox's Steven Wright: Will throw live BP next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (shoulder) will pitch a live batting practice session sometime late next week, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

He suffered his shoulder injury in August and only pitched in two more games before missing the rest of the season. The knuckleballer sparkled last year with a 3.33 ERA in 156.2 innings but will be hard-pressed to repeat it. AL-only players should bid carefully, considering he still hasn't cemented a rotation job even if healthy.

Red Sox's Drew Pomeranz: To throw live BP late next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pomeranz (elbow) is scheduled to throw his first live batting practice exercise late next week, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

Pomeranz felt discomfort in his left throwing elbow near the end of the last season and soon after received a stem cell injection. This raised eyebrows, considering the Padres wound up in trouble with the league after failing to disclose the southpaw's full medical report when they traded him to Boston. Even with questions surrounding his health and how he'll hold up after his notable innings increase last year, Pomeranz remains an intriguing arm to own as a back-end fantasy starter in mixed leagues -- if he wins a spot in the rotation.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Will throw live BP work Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (knee) will work his first live batting practice of spring Friday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

Rodriguez continues to work his way back from the knee issue he suffered in December during Venezuelan winter ball. The Red Sox will bring him along conservatively, but barring any setbacks in camp or the World Baseball Classic, he should be ready for Opening Day. The next question: Will he break camp in the rotation?

Red Sox's Roenis Elias: Scheduled to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias will be the starting pitcher Saturday against the Twins at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers (Fla.), Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald reports.

The Red Sox will be getting look at three of its depth starters right out of the gate in spring training -- Elias follows Brian Johnson on Thursday against Northeastern University and Henry Owens on Friday against the Mets. Those three, along with Kyle Kendrick, will open the season in the starting rotation at Triple-A Pawtucket and are considered potential starters should Boston need a fill-in at some point. None of those four will be first in line for starts, however. The Red Sox will first give available starts to whichever of Eduardo Rodriguez, Steven Wright or Drew Pomeranz lose out in the competition for the final two spots in Boston's rotation.

Red Sox's Heath Hembree: In position to make Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hembree has a good shot of making Boston's roster for Opening Day due to being out of minor league options, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

The Red Sox will have to keep Hembree on the roster all season or risk losing him if he's designated for assignment. The right-hander, who has a career 2.95 ERA over the last two seasons in a variety of roles for Boston, will almost surely be claimed if he pops up on waivers. Right-handed batters have hit .218 with a measly .634 OPS against Hembree since he broke into the majors with San Francisco in 2013. However, with the back end of the bullpen all set, the 28-year-old is looking at a multi-inning, middle-relief role. In that event, he'll need to be better against left-handers, who had an .890 OPS against him last season, up from .862 the previous season.
