Jerry Remy returns to Red Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. — A few notes as the Red Sox get ready to play:

• NESN broadcaster Jerry Remy made his first appearance at camp. He has not been with the team since last August when his son was charged with murder. Jared Remy is awaiting trial in his death of his girlfriend, Jennifer Martel.

NESN’s first game is Sunday and Remy will be in the booth with Don Orsillo.

• Jon Lester, who beat the St. Louis Cardinals twice in the World Series, will not face them on Wednesday in Jupiter. He will pitch a simulated game in Fort Myers instead.


• Daniel Nava, who has missed batting practice the last few days with a pinched nerve in his neck, will do a full workout today and could be in the lineup this weekend.

• Johnny Pesky would have been 95 today. The long-time Red Sox player, coach and ambassador passed away in 2012. His presence is missed around spring training.
