6:23 PM…Just arrived in Reading, PA, we left early this morning, so we could get a good night’s rest for tomorrow night’s opener against the R-Phils.
I’ll have more later.
9:24 PM…Felix Doubront has officially been named the opening day starter for the Portland Sea Dogs. Doubront is a member of Boston’s 40-man roster and was the Sea Dogs’ 2009 Pitcher of the Year. RHP Vance Worley gets the starting nod for the Reading Phillies…A couple of minor league transactions took place today. 1B Mike Jones and C Ty Weeden were released by the Red Sox. Jones received a lot of playing time with the Sea Dogs during spring training.
I’ll have a full report tomorrow leading up to Opening Night!
