Red Sox camp report

A daily recap from camp as the Sox prepare for their first exhibition game Feb. 21.

 THURSDAY’S WEATHER: It was 70 with periods of rain, at times heavy.

MEDICAL REPORT: Clay Buchholz (right hamstring) threw from halfway up the mound to a standing catcher. He may be only a few days away from a normal bullpen session. Mike Napoli had an MRI on his hips. The results will determine when he starts doing more than hitting and throwing.

FUNDAMENTALLY SPEAKING: The Sox had a full slate of activities canceled by the rain. The 14 pitchers scheduled to throw in the bullpen did their work under cover in the batting cages instead. The hitters then took batting practice.

 THUMBS UP: Shane Victorino was the only player who did some work on the field, playing catch for several minutes between showers to loosen up a little. He flew into Fort Myers Wednesday night.

THUMBS DOWN: The weather. Teams need rainouts after a few weeks of spring training, not on the third day.

AROUND THE BASES: Joel Hanrahan said he enjoyed throwing in the cages because the pop of his fastball in the catcher’s glove echoed louder. “It sounded like I was throwing 105,” he said . . . John Farrell said he likes the idea of hitting David Ortiz third against righthanders and Dustin Pedroia in that spot against lefthanders. When Pedroia hits third, Victorino would hit second.

 SCHEDULE: Today is the first full-squad workout. There is a meeting at 8:30 a.m. and the team is scheduled to be on the field to stretch an hour later. Rain is possible again.
