Notes: The Sox have lost three straight. After tonight, they have 12 exhibition games left including a split-squad doubleheader on Saturday. … Cook has thrown 5.1 scoreless innings in his two starts, both against the Orioles. The veteran sinkerballer probably doesn’t have time to get ready for Opening Day but he is presenting himself as an option at some point. … Phelps has thrown 7.2 innings without allowing an earned run. He did take the loss against the Red Sox on March 13 in Tampa when he allowed an unearned run. Phelps was 7-7, 2.99 in 23 starts in the minors last season.


Josh Beckett will start a minor league game this afternoon. Check back later for a report on that.
