In just a few short days, pitchers and catchers will report to Fort Myers, Florida. A handful of players have already arrived. Among them are Rocco Baldelli, Jon Lester and Josh Beckett. Today, Beckett and Lester got to meet one of the newest Red Sox players, Takashi Saito.
Newly acquired Red Sox outfielder Rocco Baldelli also arrived in Fort Myers on Monday and addressed the health issues he has faced the last couple of seasons.
“Obviously I hope to get on the field more than I did last season,” said Baldelli. “I feel good…Being able to go out on the field and do the job I’m probably going to be asked to do won’t be as difficult as it was last year.”
