FORT MYERS, Fla. — Mike Lowell made his much-anticipated arrival at the player development complex today, walking in at 2:30 p.m., and out at about 3:05 p.m., and wearing his usual backward hat. While Lowell was very pleasant, he declined to speak at length, saying that he’s going to be talking to the media tomorrow. That should make for the most interesting interview we’ve had at spring training so far.
He understands his position, and knows that there are many questions that reporters will have for him. I have no doubt that he’ll do his best to be honest tomorrow about his position, which isn’t the most comfortable for a player.
Marco Scutaro remains the only player not to check in at camp today, though manager Terry Francona indicated that he would be here tomorrow for physicals. Players really only need to be in Fort Myers for reporting day today.
