Pedroia 'wouldn't have' had 2017 knee surgery

Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia says if he had to do it all over again, he wouldn't have had the knee surgery after the 2017 season that sidelined him for all but three games in 2018.

One note from Red Sox camp: Alex Cora said the plan is to carry just two catchers this year instead of the three they carried last year. Christian Vazquez would appear to be the lock as he's signed through 2021. That leaves Sandy Leon or Blake Swihart. Leon earns raves from the pitching staff, but he also hit .177 last year (and .095 in the second half when he went 11-for-116). Swihart can also fill in at multiple positions.

Sale ready to get back to his pre-injury form

Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale wants to make 30-plus starts and pitch 200-plus innings, like he'd done in four of his previous five seasons.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Aaron Boone watched all of last year's World Series — even the Red Sox's celebration. Gave an eloquent answer about watching that, but he ended it by saying: "That adds a little fuel to the fire, certainly."

Chris Sale on Craig Kimbrel remaining unsigned: "It's crazy to me. ... He 100 percent makes a team better. ... With half the teams in the league just showing up to collect checks, it doesn't help."

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Even though the Red Sox won the World Series, Chris Sale said "last year kind of stunk" as he dealt with his shoulder injury in the second half. He said it was the hardest year of his career. His goal in 2019: Make 30+ starts, pitching 200+ innings and win another title. Oh ... he said he'd also love to remain in Boston.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Dave Dombrowski said Chris Sale is healthy and has been "cleared to have a normal spring training." Sale had two separate DL stints in the second half of 2018 due to shoulder inflammation and while he pitched in the postseason, his velocity was down and the Red Sox started David Price on short rest over him in Game 5 (although Sale finished off the clincher by striking out the side in the ninth inning).
