Papelbon on tap

Jonathan Papelbon is still on tap to pitch tomorrow night’s exhibition opener against the Twins. The other pitchers Terry Francona intends to take with him are: Rudy Seanez, David Riske, Manny Delcarmen, Craig Hansen (all roster pitchers).

Francona will also take nonroster lefties Craig Breslow, Mike Bumatay, and Mike Holtz.

The guys who don’t play tomorrow will work out at City of Palms Park at 9:30 a.m. That presumably includes Manny Ramirez.
