FORT MYERS, Fla. — Another spring training milestone is upon us. Today is the day position players report.
For the Red Sox, it’s largely uneventful as every player of significance has checked in. With a new manager running things, on-time is the new late this season.
The position players will get their physicals tomorrow and the first full-squad workout will be on Saturday.
That is traditionally the day the owners, general manager and manager address the team in the clubhouse. Then the chairman of the board of Popeye’s will thank them for all the free publicity.
It’s another nice day at the Fort. If you’re in the area and coming to the workout, it will start around 9:30 a.m.
Pitcher Roy Oswalt is expected to pick a team today. The Red Sox made him an offer, but Ben Cherington has said he doesn’t expect any additions.
