Jon Heyman of CBSsports.com has tweeted that Jason Varitek will be invited to Red Sox camp as a non-roster player. Varitek has yet to decide whether he will accept the invitation or retire.
Reached on the subject moments ago, Sox GM Ben Cherington texted that the team has not yet formally offered Varitek anything at this time.
Varitek would have to compete with Kelly Shoppach and Ryan Lavarnway for the No. 2 job.
