  • The SoxProspects crew has been in Fort Myers on the backfields gathering a ton of content, including video from batting practice, infield work, and minor league games. Be sure to check out the SoxProspects.com Twitter pageMike Andrews, Chris Hatfield, Ian Cundall, and James Dunne also have content on their own accounts.
  • Some highlights from the trip include a couple Bobby Dalbec (pictured) home runs, one to center and one to rightTanner Houck utilizing his low three-quarters arm slot during a dominant performanceDanny Diaz going yard a few times during batting practice, and 2018 first-round pick Triston Casas taking some batting practice swings
  • It looks like Marco Hernandez will stay in extended spring training to continue his rehab. Nick Decker, Antoni Flores, and Nick Northcut will also most likely begin the year in extended spring. 
  • Another interesting tidbit from the back fields is that Michael Chavis did not play any third base over the past few days, sticking to just first and second, while Bobby Dalbec has only played third.
