Red Sox's Joe Kelly: In starting rotation
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kelly was assured by manager John Farrell that he will be in Boston's starting rotation when the 2016 season begins, the Boston Herald reports.

Kelly's finish to the 2015 season -- 8-0 with a 3.00 ERA in his last nine starts -- makes him an attractive sleeper entering 2016, but manager John Farrell is no position to be patient. If Kelly gets off to a slow start, Farrell, a manager that's guided Boston to two consecutive last-place finishes, could be forced to relegate Kelly to the bullpen or Triple-A and use one of the team's depth starters.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Working on slider, cutter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eduardo Rodriguez has been working this offseason to improve the precision of his slider and the introduction of a cutter, the Providence Journal reports.

The slider is seen as a critical third pitch for the left-hander against whom lefty hitters had a measure of success. Seven of his 13 homers surrendered were to left-handed hitters, and lefties slugged 159 points higher against him than righties.

Red Sox's Travis Shaw: Will train in outfield
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Shaw will spend time in left field early on in training camp to determine if he's a viable option at the position, the Boston Herald reports.

As it stands now, Shaw has a good shot at making Boston's roster on his infield work alone, particularly as the Red Sox try out Hanley Ramirez at first base, but adding outfield to his resume should cement a roster spot for him. Shaw surprised everyone last season, hitting .270 with 13 homers in 248 plate appearances over August and September.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Confident he's fixed tipping problem
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rodriguez said he's fixed the problem of tipping his pitches that arose last season in the major leagues, WEEI.com reports.

Rodriguez's problems began June 14 in a loss to the Blue Jays, then resurfaced spectacularly June 25 against the Orioles. He retired the first 10 batters he faced, including five by strikeout, before a Chris Parmalee double got the O's rolling. Forced to pitch from the stretch, Rodriguez allowed seven straight hits and six runs before departing. He had been tipping pitches out of the stretch by the position of his head and glove. The left-hander said he had fixed the problem by the end of the last season -- as evidenced by a 2.08 ERA in his final seven starts -- and he's been working all winter on his mechanics to remove any "tell" opponents can spot.

Red Sox's Robbie Ross: Settles at $1.25 million with Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robbie Ross and the Boston Red Sox settled on a $1.25 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, John Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The lefty struggled at the start of 2015, posting a 6.17 ERA over his first 13 games leading to a couple of stints in Triple-A. It turned out to be a productive move for the Red Sox, as Ross closed out the remainder of the season with a 3.31 ERA over 41 games. Both parties are hoping he can ride this momentum into 2016 and remain an effective middle reliever.
