Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts: 'Strongest I've ever felt'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts has been working out at the EXOS performance institute in Arizona, the facility where second baseman Dustin Pedroia trains every offseason. ESPN.com says Bogaerts feels he's pushed himself more than ever before, "and the results are showing."

"This is probably the strongest I’ve ever felt going into a season -- and by far,” Bogaerts said, via the website. “I’m definitely real excited for the season.”

Bogaerts, 22, had an up-and-down 2014 season, his first full year in the majors. He finished at .240 with 12 homers and 46 RBI in 144 games.

He'll spend a few more weeks training in Arizona before reporting to spring training.

“I kind of never challenged my body to lift heavier weights because I’ve always tried to kind of maintain the same,” Bogaerts said. “Getting the knowledge from those kind of guys and just trusting the whole system that they have over there and just pushing your body, it’s really a difference than any years I’ve had in the past.

“It was mostly gym and conditioning and speed and stuff like that, power and speed. It was definitely something that I really enjoyed.”

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox and Rangers announced a two player trade Tuesday where Boston sent Anthony Ranaudo to Texas and the Rangers sent Robbie Ross to the Red Sox, both teams announced.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Tuesday Ranaudo is in play to become the No. 5 starter in the rotation, but if he doesn't win the job, he will likely start in the minors.

Ranaudo posted a 4-3 record with a 4.81 ERA in 2014 for Boston in 39 1/3 innings pitched. Ross went 3-6 with a 6.20 ERA in 78 1/3 innings for the Rangers.

Report: Cuban prospect Yoan Moncada nearing free agency
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Cuban prospect Yoan Moncada's journey to free agency took another step forward after recent changes by the Obama Administration now allow native Cubans who can prove permanent residency in a third country to receive a general unblocking license, sources told Yahoo Sports.

Moncada, 19, is a switch hitting shortstop waiting to be cleared by the U.S. government's Office of Foreign Asset Control before he can sign with a major-league team. The Brewers, Rangers, Giants, Dodgers, Yankees, Red Sox and Padres have recently seen Moncada perform in a private workout.
