Boston Red Sox Spring Training Report: Updates of Surprises, Busts and Injuries
Gene J. Puskar/Associated Press

The atmosphere around the Boston Red Sox during spring training this season is much different than it was in 2013. Instead of rebuilding their roster after a last-place finish, Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz are preparing to defend a World Series title.

Manager John Farrell successfully changed the culture in the clubhouse following the firing of Bobby Valentine, and he’s looking to continue that progress this season.

The Red Sox are two weeks away from their season-opening series at Camden Yards against the Baltimore Orioles on March 31. There is still a lot to be determined, such as the starting shortstop and starting center fielder.

There have been plenty of developments along the way as Boston prepares to officially start defending its title. Click through for an update of the biggest surprises and busts so far in camp, as well as the injuries that have surfaced.
