The Red Sox trend of going worst-to-first-to-worst has been frustrating, but it's helped them build what they have now. (Dustin Palmateer; BP Boston)

Hanley Ramirez is still adjusting in the outfield, but overall things have gone just fine thus far. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

In Tuesday's game, Ramirez actually came back to the infield to play third base. It was almost another outfielder doing that. (Gordon Edes; ESPN Boston)

Mookie Betts has seen some of the things written about him, but he's trying not to focus on them. (Christopher Smith; Masslive.com)

The Red Sox certainly don't need all of their pitchers to be aces, but they need them to at least be good enough. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

The early returns on Boston's deep bench have been quite promising. (Scott Lauber; Boston Herald)

We can all breath easy. Xander Bogaerts said his knee felt fine after yesterday's game. (Jimmy Toscano; CSN New England)

In some not so great news, Brandon Workman got a PRP injection after seeing Dr. James Andrews. (Ryan Hannable; WEEI.com)
