Thursday in Fort Myers: Time for ‘The Juanchi’ drill — FORT MYERS, Fla. - It's Day 2 of full-squad workouts today and the Sox will be on the field at 9:30, weather permitting. Rain seems to be on the way. If the Sox do get on the field the pitchers will do a drill called "The Juanchi."

Junichi Tazawa has little use for new bat bag — FORT MYERS, Fla. - Relief pitcher Junichi Tazawa has a brand new Under Armour bat bag on the shelf above his locker. "Taz" is embroidered in gold letters on the end. Tazawa has not had a plate appearance since he joined the Red Sox in 2009, so his having a bat bag seemed curious.

Red Sox will have first full-squad workout today — FORT MYERS, Fla. - So many players arrived at Red Sox camp early this season that David Ortiz was actually criticized by some knuckleheads for arriving on time. That's how eager the players have been for spring training. Maybe it's because the season is starting a little late this year or that there are so many new players on the roster.

Sleek-looking David Ortiz arrives at camp — FORT MYERS, Fla. - David Ortiz very much knows who he is, so it was with a practiced smile and wave that he greeted a phalanx of photographers waiting to record his arrival at JetBlue Park Tuesday. "Papi's here," said Ortiz, who was wearing a Notorious B.I.G.

In Yoan Moncada, Red Sox essentially paid for a No. 1 pick — FORT MYERS, Fla. - The Red Sox have never picked higher than seventh in the amateur draft, and barring a repeat of last season's lifeboat drill, it will be a while before they do again. That largely explains why they were willing to invest so much money on Cuban standout Yoan Moncada.

Tuesday in Fort Myers: Activity heats up at Red Sox camp — FORT MYERS, Fla. - For the Red Sox, spring training will start to gain a little more momentum today as the position players officially report to camp. As the pitchers and catchers work out on the field, the infielders and outfielders will get their physicals and meet with manager John Farrell.

Red Sox sign Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada — FORT MYERS, Fla. - Yoan Moncada, a 19-year-old star from Cuba, has agreed to sign with the Red Sox according to a report by Moncada is a switch-hitting infielder with power and speed who left Cuba in June and quickly became the subject of an intense bidding war.

Monday in Fort Myers: Red Sox to announce Pawtucket acquisition — FORT MYERS, Fla. - Good morning from a fog-shrouded JetBlue Park. The Sox won't be on the field until later this morning. There's expected to be an announcement later Monday detailing the sale of the Pawtucket Red Sox. The Red Sox are involved in the purchase of their Triple A affiliate.

Brandon Workman has worked hard to return to prominent Red Sox role — FORT MYERS, Fla. - Brandon Workman wouldn't trade in his World Series ring from 2013, but the downturn in 2014 because of his workload in '13 was damaging to his career. He was 1-9 with a 5.36 ERA as a starter in 2014 and that prompted the Red Sox to drop him back into the bullpen for this season.

Red Sox Spring Training — FORT MYERS, Fla. - Here is a look at the Red Sox' Sunday workout: Sunday's weather: It was 75 degrees when the team left the field.
