A few updates following the 15-0 victory against Northeastern:
* RHP Gaby Hernandez, who was DFA’d the other day, was claimed by the Royals. That makes them his third organization in a month.
* Daisuke Matsuzaka did well in his throwing session and will throw a regular side session on Friday. It will be his first of the spring.
* Terry Francona and the players were still cracking up about staffer/clubhouse guy Ino Guerrero getting two at-bats against the Huskies. The entire team was on the top step of the dugout for the first one when he grounded out.
Francona said they were rooting for a hamstring pull.
* Victor Martinez said he was shocked when he learned Casey Kelly was a part-time shortstop last year. “You can’t tell,” he said. “He’s very refined.”
