Catchers and pitchers have reported to Arizona which means baseball is that much closer. Below are links to stories regarding the Sox and their prospects.
AAA. Jared Mitchell will start the season in Charlotte.
Pitching prospects. Gonzo tweets that pitching coach Don Cooper likes what he sees from top pitching prospects Scott Snodgress and Erik Johnson.
Snodgress and johnson made favorable impressions on Cooper in first pensEverything will be okay. Chuck Garfien reports that Robin Ventura declined a one-year contract extension. Some fans are really overreacting, but it isn't a big deal. Venture stills has two years left on his current contract and isn't really worried about 2015 right now. If he wants to keep managing he will, if he doesn't, he won't.
