Vazquez (elbow) uncertain for Opening Day

FORT MYERS, Fla. — No one needs to remind manager John Farrell just how important 24-year-old catcher Christian Vazquez is to the future plans of the Red Sox.

After feeling discomfort in his right (throwing) elbow while throwing out a runner on March 13 against the Yankees, the Red Sox decided to shut him down and rebuild his strength. He did DH a week later against the Orioles but did not play in the field. Farrell said Thursday morning that program is continuing but added, there’s no guarantee he’ll be ready for the opener April 6 in Philadelphia.

“He will continue to go through his throwing program,”...

Connolly could return by end of regular season
By: DJ Bean

Bruins right wing Brett Connolly was initially expected to miss six weeks after a Dennis Seidenberg wrist shot left him with a broken finger in his second practice as a member of the Bruins earlier this month. On Thursday, Connolly skated with his teammates for the first time since the injury, following one order.

“Stay away from Seids,” Connolly recalled his teammates warning him.

Now that the initial despair from Connolly’€™s bad luck has turned into something he can joke about, his attention has been turned to an eventual return — or debut, rather — that could come sooner than initially thought.

After getting back on the ice last Monday and working extensively with strength and conditioning coach John Whitesides, Connolly...

Sox option Cecchini, reassign Owens, cut Boggs

FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Red Sox continue to make moves to round their Opening Day roster into form.

Before Thursday’s game against the Twins, the team made a series of transactions to trim the roster down.

Outfielder Bryce Brentz and third baseman/outfielder Garin Cecchini were among four players optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket. Also optioned to the PawSox were right-handed pitchers Heath Hembree and Zeke Spruill.

‘€œWe’€™re going to move him around defensively With the configuration of our big league roster and certainly with Pablo entrenched at third, we’€™re going to look to create some defensive versatility with Garin, and that will include first base, that will include left field,” manager John Farrell said Thursday.

“The way he...

Victorino blasts critics: 'Come show up'
By: WEEI

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Over the past few days much has been made of Shane Victorino and Cole Hamels, with the Red Sox potentially giving up prospects (most notably Mookie Betts and Blake Swihart) to get a number one starter.

Victorino has taken exception to the matter and spoke to WEEI.com’s Rob Bradford Thursday morning calling out the critics.

“Of course. I wouldn’t use the word surprised,” he said. “I think it’s just the understanding of what was being construed and these guys are obviously going to assume because those are the names that were attached. There is no reason why I would want anybody out of here. That’s not the basis of the conversation. The conversation was if you could go get a number one, would you give up pieces of the future to go get them? That was the question. It wasn’t this name specifically, that name just because those guys have been attached to these kinds of players or...
