Notes From Fort Myers

John Lackey threw his first live BP session of the spring yesterday and Farrell liked what he saw. ... Clay Buchholz (right hamstring) will throw a bullpen session today. ... Centerfielder Jackie Bradley loves power shagging. ... Joel Hanrahan and Shane Victorino were minor league roommates in 2004.

Felix Doubront needs to pay more attention to his conditioning. ... Daniel Bard feels confident and looks good on the mound. ... Tim Wakefield will be in camp next week to work with knuckleballer Steven Wright.

Alfredo Aceves is already giving John Farrell a headache. ... Rob Bradford looks at why Aceves is still with the team.

The Red Sox play their annual doubleheader against Northeastern and Boston College on Thursday. Farrell said he will use 14 relief pitchers for one inning each.

Gordon Edes tweet from today:

I asked [Pedro] now that he's done, how many guys did he hit on purpose. "About 90 percent," he said.
