There will be no baseball today. The Red Sox-Cardinals game in Jupiter was rained out and is tentatively scheduled to be made up March 22 as part of a split-squad doubleheader.
Clay Buchholz, today’s scheduled starter, will start tomorrow’s game against the Pirates with Michael Bowden following him.
The Sox will play an intrasquad B game tomorrow. Pitching then will be Daniel Bard, Hideki Okajima, Casey Kelly and Ramon Ramirez. That game will be at City of Palms Park right after the first game.
Jason Varitek said in the clubhouse a few minutes ago that he plans to play on Sunday. Other than a few innings against Boston College on March 3, it will be his first game. Mike Lowell remains scheduled for Monday.
So there you have it, you’re all caught on the Sox for today.
