Rounding third base
With another road game today, things were pretty quiet again at Bright House Networks Field.
Tomorrow, the team’s equipment truck will be packed for the trip north to Citizens Bank Park. Players and staff may send personal belongings. Some baseball equipment, boxes of office-related items, medical supplies and even a few sets of golf clubs will be on the truck.
Some of the players will ship their cars north on auto transport vehicles.
This morning, more players were sent to Carpenter Field (see the story on this website). Three were told they would make the trip north for Friday’s and Saturday’s games against the Boston Red Sox at Citizens Bank Park. Catcher Jason Jaramillo is back with the big club as Carlos Ruiz and Chris Coste are still nursing injuries.
Four other minor leaguers will also be on the charter flight on Thursday evening for the Friday-Saturday games.
On the minor league front, the Reading, Clearwater and Lakewood clubs will be finished with spring training this weekend. The Ottawa Lynx (AAA International League) will be here through Monday.
Another year of spring training in sparkling Clearwater is rounding third base.
