The Red Sox have reassigned righthanded pitchers Aaron Cook and Ross Ohlendorf to minor league camp. They will be in the rotation for Triple-A Pawtucket.
The contenders for two roster spots at this point are RHP Scott Atchison, C Dan Butler, INF Pedro Ciriaco, OF Jason Repko, INF Nate Spears and LHP Justin Thomas.
That’s assuming that Michael Bowden and Vicente Padilla are safely in the bullpen, which seems to be the case.
The Sox have to decide whether they want to carry an extra pitcher.
