    MATT SPRING does not figure to be in Boston's major league plans, but the Red Sox keep re-signing him to minor league contracts (2013 being his third season).

    Spring, 28, provides leadership at a key position.

    The fact that he's batting .306 doesn't hurt.

    THIRD BASE IS another position that the Red Sox will be making decisions about at the minor league level.

    Portland began the year with "21/2" players at the position -- Michael Almanzar, Kolbrin Vitek and Travis Shaw (who primarily plays first base).

    Almanzar, 22, the one-time touted prospect, is off to a hot start (eight home runs/30 RBI), so the Red Sox want to see more of him at third.

    That meant a position change for Vitek.

    Thinning out the third base position in Portland allows for the possibility that Salem third baseman Garrin Cecchini could reach Hadlock this summer.

    Cecchini, 22, was a fourth-round pick in 2010 (given the same $1.3 million signing bonus offered to Vitek).
