Among those concerns is Tyler Thornburg’s status. If the set-up man has to miss the start of the season, Joe Kelly will take over the eighth inning. (Christopher Smith; Masslive)

Another concern is Pablo Sandoval, who is doing everything right this spring but still has plenty to prove. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

Drew Pomeranz hasn’t come along as we’d hoped, but after a slow start Steven Wright is looking good. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald)
