Newly acquired Red Sox outfielder Wily Mo Pena is in Fort Myers this morning working out with the team. Sox manager Terry Francona said he expected to give Pena an at bat or two in today’s Grapefruit League contest against the Devil Rays, and added that he’ll be on the squad that travels to Tampa tomorrow to play the Yankees.
He’s taking some BP with the team, and has already put a couple of balls over the scoreboard.
Former Sox pitcher Bronson Arroyo, now a member of the Cincinnati Reds, was also in Sox camp this morning. Juan Gonzalez, however, was not. The injury-prone slugging right fielder signed a minor league deal with the Sox.
