Francona was asked specifically about the plans for knuckleballer Tim Wakefield, who could share middle and long relief roles with Alfredo Aceves if the team chooses to keep both.
"These guys have a stressful couple of weeks ahead of them. I'm not going to make it worse," Francona said when asked if Wakefield's spot on the roster was assured. "We're going to have decisions to make. It's going to be tough on some guys because they probably deserve to make the team."
