Postcard from Red Sox Camp, Day 8: Gone golfing
FORT MYERS, Fla. — Wednesday was a short day of workouts for the Red Sox at the JetBlue Park complex.
After some live BP, baserunning, and the rest of the usual drills, the team went over to The Forest Country Club for the 26th Annual Boston Red Sox Children’s Hospital Celebrity Golf Classic.
Alex Cora spoke to the media before the end of the day.
Here’s a breakdown of everything that went on.
A full house minus Ryan Brasier, who flew back to Boston on Tuesday due to an infected pinky toe.
WHAT WAS SAID?
Alex Cora on Ryan Brasier’s infected toe: “I think they’re going to change the medicine, and if he reacts well to that then he’ll come down [back to Fort Myers]. If they give him the green light, he might come down tonight. But we’ll see.”
Alex Cora on Tyler Thornburg’s live BP: “Mechanic-wise, it wasn’t great. Stuff-wise, the velocity was there which is a great sign because it’s not ‘oh my fastball isn’t there, velocity’s not there.’ Now it’s about mechanics, which I think is a positive. Probably for him it wasn’t a great day, but for me just watching, he’s going to have good days, bad days. As long as his stuff stays the same, he’s going to be fine.”
WHAT WAS DONE?
Live BP, baserunning, bullpens, fielding, you know the drill.
