Despite his age and general lack of experience, Xander Bogaerts has been enjoying the sort of travel schedule typically reserved for veterans so far this spring. He'll be subject to the bus today, however, making the nearly two hour trip to the Yankees' spring training home.

Thanks to the allure of the Red Sox - Yankees matchup, today marks the second straight nationally televised game courtesy of ESPN. WEEI will also have a broadcast for those who won't have access to a television. First pitch is at 1:05 p.m. EST.
