FORT MYERS, Fla. — As of this morning, there are 36 players (out of 58) already in Red Sox camp. Pitchers and catchers don’t officially report until Saturday.

Mike Napoli, complete with beard, is here and went through a busy day. He took a few grounders and batting practice before going out to the conditioning field to work on some agility drills with strength and conditioning coach Pat Sandora.

Xander Bogaerts and Will Middlebrooks were on the field early, taking grounders. Other recent arrivals include Allen Webster, Brock Holt and Brandon Snyder.

Napoli spoke to reporters after his workout. Check back later for that.
