A quick update to today's column. Jorge Jimenez, who has played third base the past season and a half for Portland, is back with the Red Sox organization. Jimenez had been a Rule V pick this past off-season and landed with the Marlins. For Florida to keep him, Jimenez had to stick on the 25-man major league roster.
Jimenez had only three hits in spring training and the Marlins sent him back to Boston. He might move right into the starting third base job in Pawtucket, especially with Gil Velazquez out with a broken finger.Tweet
