Recently acquired infielder Ryan Roberts was picked up in large part as a utility glove, but as an added bonus it looks like his batting eye improved this spring training, too! Well, not so much his batting eye as his actual eyesight. (Ricky Doyle;

Roberts will be filling time for the injured Will Middlebrooks, who himself may be filling time for minor league third base prospect Garin Cecchini. How long is anyone's guess, however, as the team isn't quite ready to bring him to the majors even after he started this season on an absolute tear. (Kevin McNamara; Providence Journal)

And John Farrell isn't concerned either, even as the injuries start to pile up. (Steve Buckley; Boston Herald)

Not everyone watching feels quite the same way, though. (Glenn Yoder;
