     Farrell mentioned today that Lavarnway has had better ABs as a catcher than a DH this spring.

    John Farrell: "We’re by no means at a point of saying this is who our DH is going to be or this is who else is going to be on the roster. But those conversations are happening more in earnest.

    "We envision it as being a little bit of a rotation so not to say that one person would strictly be a DH. That’s an initial approach."

    We don’t have another David Ortiz,” said Sox manager John Farrell "... To say that it would be a drastic shift to a player’s routine or staying loose in between at-bats to what they might not otherwise be accustomed to, we haven’t pinpointed one guy.”

    Most of these I would have expected, but the Linares move surprises me. He has a real good spring so far and with the Ortiz injury , I would have thought they would have kept him and see if he could potentially fill the DH role. Considering he is 28, it seems the Sox do not think he has much of a ML level future, if they are sending him to the Minor league camp already.

    Did Juan Carlos Linares shoot Ben Cherington's dog or insult his children in public?  This guy has always hit and seems to not even ever get a long look?  Can anyone explain this?

    Nick Cafardo/BOSTON Globe:

    "The Red Sox aren't worried about a long term situation with David Ortiz' sore heels based on medicals according to a team source"

    John Farrell reports that Stephen Drew (concussion) is improved. Hope is he could return to at least working out on Thursday.

    It's a mystery to me. moonslav thinks it's because the Sox don't have to put him on the 40 man roster to protect him yet.
