Why is that noteworthy? Well, for one thing, Red Sox pitchers and catchers aren't due to report for another eight days.
In the big picture, that may not seem like much. After all, in recent years, players typically report to camp well ahead of the mandatory date.
But the fact that Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello, Nathan Eovaldi and Eduardo Rodriguez are already at work speaks to a drive the staff has and a willingness to put the work in to help the Red Sox repeat as World Series champs.
