In Portland, the phone rings from Fenway

Heading into spring training, the Red Sox 25-man roster looks nearly set barring injuries, save for the last couple of spots in the bullpen. On top of that, the roster of the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox looks like it will be loaded with some well-regarded prospects and a slew of other players with ample major league experience.

In fact, Boston has promoted 20 such players over the past six seasons.
