Greetings from Fort Myers. It's a little overcast, but we're dealing with it.
The Red Sox are currently taking batting practice. Dustin Pedroia, who slightly sprained his wrist two days ago, took BP earlier today and reported no problems, according to manager Terry Francona. Pedroia is not in the lineup, although Francona said he is able to play (probably back in on Friday).
We'll get to more news soon. For now, here's today's lineup against the Marlins:
Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
Marco Scutaro, SS
Victor Martinez, C
Kevin Youkilis, 1B
David Ortiz, DH
J.D. Drew, RF
Adrian Beltre, 3B
Jeremy Hermida, LF
Bill Hall, 2B
(Tim Wakefield, P)
Note: Daisuke Matsuzaka is also scheduled to pitch.
