Lester makes 2d start

Jon Lester, who had control issues in his first spring outing, goes today against the Reds. He’ll be opposed by the Reds’ top pitching prospect, Homer Bailey. Sox are being cautious with Coco Crisp, who has a sore groin. Former Sox catcher Scott Hatteberg is here with the Reds; no Junior Griffey, but Dusty Baker makes his Fort Myers debut as manager of the Reds.
