Red Sox Spring Training Report: 3/13/17 John Bazemore/Associated Press

The regular season is just a few weeks away, and I am here to catch you up on the last few days of spring training. The usual topic... David Price

To catch up on the last report, check out Adam Belue's report here.

Game Recaps

- Friday, March 10 vs Baltimore Orioles: W 4-0. Kyle Kendrick had a very solid start, giving up no runs and two hits in four innings. The entire Red Sox staff blanked the Orioles on offense, giving up only six hits. Boston scored three of the four runs in the first inning, as Chris Young, Marco Hernandez and Josh Rutledge all had RBIs. 

-Saturday, March 11 split-squad vs Minnesota Twins and Tampa Bay Rays. VS. Twins: L 13-0. Henry Owens showed that is still not major league ready, as he gave up six runs on five hits and four walks in just 2.1 innings. Boston mustered six hits and no runs.  VS. Rays: W 2-1. In a much better game, Chris Sale gave up just one hit in 4.1 innings and looked much better than his first outing. He had five strikeouts. Boston scored both its runs in the third inning, as Mitch Moreland and Pablo Sandoval each had RBI singles. 

Sunday, March 12 at Philadelphia Phillies. L 6-5. Eduardo Rodriguez had a very encouraging start, giving up three hits and one run in four innings. Not so good for Craig Kimbrel, as he gave up three runs in one inning. On offense, Steve Selsky and Sandoval both had two hits and two RBI. The Phillies won with a run in the ninth on two Sox errors and a sac fly. 

Monday, March 13 at Toronto Blue Jays. L 4-3. Steven Wright pitched two perfect innings for Boston before Hector Velasquez came in and gave up three runs. Boston falls to 7-10 in spring training.

News and Notes

- David Price threw 25 pitches into a net on Saturday in his first throwing action since having his left elbow checked by Dr. James Andrews. At this point it was all positive for Price in minimal work. On Sunday, Price did the same drill with 25 pitches into a net.

- When Xander Bogaerts was playing for the Netherlands team in the World Baseball Classic, apparently his teammates and coaching staff were intent on watching the youngster play. 

- Before the Sox-Phillies game on Sunday, former Sox Clay Buchholz caught up his old teammates and coaches that he spent years with in Boston. Abraham wrote a piece on Buchholz speaking of his tenure in Boston.

- After pitching Sunday, Eduardo Rodriguez said he feels good and all he's worried about helping the team.

- Reliever Carson Smith threw in the bullpen on Monday for the first time since Tommy John surgery last year. 

- After a good outing Monday, Wright says he is not concerned about his shoulder. That is good news for the Sox. 

- The team will make its first round of cuts on Tuesday.
