Pomeranz And Rodriguez Will Begin Season On DL

Drew Pomeranz (forearm strain) and Eduardo Rodriguez (recovering from ligament reconstruction on his right knee) will begin the season on the disabled list.

Manager Alex Cora has said that Brian Johnson would take one of the spots. Hector Velazquez may be the leading candidate for the other one, but Cora may be tabbed for the other get a start or two. Cora noted that Marcus Walden and Justin Haley are also possibilities.

And: Steven Wright will serve a 15-game suspension for violating MLB's domestic violence policy. The Red Sox traded Deven Marrero to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Spring Training stats should always be ignored, but it's still good to see David Price post this three-start line in Florida: 12-5-3-4-13 (2.25).

Psst: "What Boone has learned, he said, is that beneath Judge's polite and respectful personality, the slugger is relentlessly competitive."
