Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens on being asked to speak to the Red Sox at spring training earlier this week: "Well first of all, I told them like I am not qualified to speak to a baseball team. I got picked off the last play of my career in high school."

Don't expect J.D. Martinez to work out with the Red Sox on Thursday, according to Dave Dombrowski. But don't read anything into it either. My understanding is that the logistics of completing a physical are more challenging when it's being conducted away from Boston. It takes a bit longer than usual to collect all the information and get it reviewed.

Red Sox won't have the results of J.D. Martinez's physical until at least Thursday.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman on whether the Yanks and Sox are now on "equal footing": "Ultimately we're not on the same ground because they are the American League East champions, and until someone takes that away from them, you have to pay that homage."

Aaron Boone said Aaron Judge won't play the first several games when the Yankees kick off their spring schedule on Friday. No concerns, they're just taking it slow after offseason shoulder surgery. He said Judge should play "within the week." Giancarlo Stanton is expected to be in the lineup on Friday.

While Brian Cashman was speaking to reporters in the Yankees' dugout, there was a little commotion in the stands. Fans suddenly cheered as Aaron Judge hit a homer off the top of the scoreboard in BP. Another line-drive homer of his got caught by a young fan holding out a hat. That created some buzz, too.
