The Red Sox are intent on finding a role for Craig in 2015, WEEI.com reports. "Allen can play first in addition to the two corner spots in the outfield. I think we're focused short-term with Allen right now," general manager Ben Cherington said. "It's one of the things we'll be able to figure out as it gets closer to opening day. He can protect us at a bunch of spots and we know if he's doing what he's capable of doing he can play everyday somewhere."
Rodriguez was encouraged to throw his changeup more often after joining the Red Sox organization mid-season in 2014, the Boston Herald reports. After incorporating the change more often, Rodriguez had a 0.96 ERA in six starts with Double-A Portland.
Pedroia (wrist) reports he's "full go," telling WEEI.com that he's been hitting since before Christmas. "If [spring training] started tomorrow, I'm ready," Pedroia said. "I've got all my strength back. I'm lifting like a maniac. I'm pretty excited. Last year at this time I couldn't hit yet. It's obvious a lot different offseason this year than last year."
Victorino (back) reports his offseason training program is going according to plan, WEEI.com reports. "So far full go. Picking up swinging this week. Throwing every day, and lifting, etc. So far, so good," said Victorino.
