J.D. Martinez continues to be not only the hottest hitter in the Red Sox lineup, but just one of the hottest in baseball to start the 2021 season. He says he’s feeling much more like his old self, and that showed yet again on Tuesday. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal)

Xander Bogaerts has gotten going a bit the last two days too, and with the shortstop shuffle coming this winter the Red Sox need to make sure they keep theirs in place. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

Garrett Whitlock has been impressing since spring training, and if he keeps throwing like he did in his big league debut he’ll be up in high leverage spots soon enough. (Chris Cotillo; Masslive)

The Red Sox are leaving the vaccination decisions up to the individual players, but they are providing education on the matter as well. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)
