Brice allowed three hits and one walk while striking out 10 over 6.2 scoreless Grapefruit League innings.

Brice will likely make the roster for an eventual Opening Day based on his strong spring. That notion was reinforced when Boston relegated Colten Brewer to the minors.

He's expected to pitch the middle innings, including multiple-inning appearances.
