Lefthander Felix Doubront is on the mound at Fenway Park throwing to teammates in a simulated game with manager John Farrell and general manager Ben Cherington watching.
Such activity the night before Game 1 suggests that Doubront is being prepared in case he is needed to start a game later in the series.
Farrell did not name his Game 3 starter today. "On the weekend we'll have that a little more clear as that gets closer," he said.
He also hedged a bit when asked about the roster for the Series.
"No roster changes as of today," Farrell said. "We're going to do with the same 25 we finished the last series with, so that hasn't been adjusted."
The Red Sox have until 10 a.m. on Wednesday to submit their roster.
Further adding to the curiosity is that Matt Thornton, who is not on the roster, also is throwing. The only reason he would throw would be to get ready to be added to the roster.
Farrell denied today that Clay Buchholz is having any health issues.
"Yeah, everything is OK," he said. "We fully expect he and Jake [Peavy] to be pitching on the weekend in St. Louis."
