• The lack of Major League experience in the Red Sox's lineup on Thursday raised some eyebrows at Roger Dean Stadium, and may not have sat well with the Marlins. Just two of the position players in the starting lineup -- Jackie Bradley Jr. and Ryan Lavarnway -- had previously appeared in big league games. MLB guidelines state teams should have a minimum of four players who are regulars or have platooned the previous season.
A blog in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel quoted a source claiming Marlins executives were "outraged" and planned on contacting the league office. However, through a team spokesman, president of baseball operations Michael Hill relayed the Marlins have no issue with Boston's travel roster. And Miami has no plans on making any protest to MLB.
Asked about the Red Sox's lineup after Thursday's 0-0 tie in a game halted because of rain, Redmond said: "I don't know their travel schedule, but I know that we were trying to get our work in. It's probably a better question for [Boston manager] John Farrell."
Said Farrell: "In writing? It's strongly suggested, and yet you deal with travel, you deal with availability of players, you deal with what we're trying to get done. Today is an enormous workday for our entire infield with [coach] Brian [Butterfield] back at home. We earmarked this day on the calendar to do just that. The integrity of the game and for what the fans are going to come and see, we certainly take that into account, but our team is the priority, the individual needs guys have. That's where we are."
• Carlos Marmol is back in camp after being gone since last Saturday to tend to some visa issues in the Dominican Republic. The reliever threw off the mound on Thursday, and he is scheduled to pitch in a game on Sunday.
• Henry Rodriguez is scheduled to make his Grapefruit League debut on Saturday.
