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.

Red Sox's Henry Owens: Will start Grapefruit League opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Owens has been named the starter for Friday's game against the Mets at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers (Fla.), Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Owens will turn 25-years-old during the 2017 season, so time is slipping away for a former top pitching prospect in the organization. The tall left-hander has struggled to consistently command his fastball, as evidenced by his 8.2 BB/9 in 22 innings for Boston in 2016. He was the first one to get a callup to start for Boston last season, but that may not be the case in 2017. Brian Johnson, Roenis Elias and former major-leaguer Kyle Kendrick will also be considered should Boston need an emergency fill-in starter.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Tapped to start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will start against Northeastern University on Thursday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

The Red Sox traditionally kick off game action during spring training against a Boston-area college and this year it's the Huskies of NU. It's not typically an important assignment, but for Johnson it is. The left-hander was on the cusp of the major leagues coming out of 2015 spring training, but an elbow injury, a toe injury and then two months away from the game to deal with an anxiety issues derailed his arrival. He finished last season, pitching well at Triple-A Pawtucket and will return there to start 2017. He's viewed as a depth starter, but is one of four guys considered as such.

Red Sox's Sam Travis: Practicing without limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Travis (knee) has been participating in all drills and has taken live batting practice, Christopher Smith of MassLive reports.

Travis rehabbed last season's ACL surgery on his left knee and has had no restrictions at spring training. The Chicago native made a splash during last year's spring training and hit well for Triple-A Pawtucket before suffering the season-ending injury in late May. He'll repeat with the PawSox to start the season, but a trip to Boston is expected at some point in 2017. It's just a question of when and which path leads him there -- an organic second-half callup, a struggling Mitch Moreland, or a Hanley Ramirez injury.

Red Sox's Brandon Workman: Faces MLB hitters in live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Workman, who hadn't faced major-league hitters since the end of the 2015 spring training, threw a live batting practice session Monday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Workman was pleased with the results of the outing, noting that he pitched better throughout the session and located well. There's very little chance the right-handed Workman breaks camp with the Red Sox, but he's fully healthy for the first time in two years and has MLB-experienced arm out of the bullpen. He could find his way back to Boston if he pitches well at Triple-A Pawtucket.
