The league's proposed new rule preventing batters from stepping out of the batter's box isn't new to Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo, who had to adjust to a similar rule when playing under the Baseball Federation of Cuba, WEEI.com reports.

"The game used to be really long, but about two years ago they implemented the rule we're trying to implement, with the hitter staying in the box," Castillo said. "That sped the game up a little bit. It did mess with some hitters, but for me, if I've got to do it, I've got to do it and I didn't think about all that much. It wasn't all that difficult for me, personally."

While the penalty for stepping out of the box under the proposed rule is a warning and potential fine, in Cuba batters receive a called strike for stepping out of the box. Cuban pitchers are also required to throw the ball within an alloted timespan.

"The biggest complaint is that people like to take that time to readjust and refocus," Castillo said. "It was just happening a little too quick, quicker than they wanted to. They wanted to control the tempo. It just took some time, but over the course of a season it just became normal. Now it's just normal. I don't know about a big difference, but it did make a difference."

Castillo will compete this spring to be the team's starting center fielder. He went 12 for 36 with two home runs and three stolen bases in his brief debut season.

Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts admitted he lost confidence in 2014 while he was struggling to get on track offensively.

“Yeah, a little bit -- going really bad for two months, I mean extremely bad,” Bogaerts said of losing confidence, per WEEI.com. “Trying to have confidence everyday coming to the park was pretty tough. This year is a new year, I feel much better. I feel much more confident in myself so, it’s something I definitely learned, no matter how tough the situation is it’s just keep your head up.”

Bogaerts said the experiences he learned last season should help him well moving forward.

“It’s a really tough game,” Bogaerts said. “Especially in the Boston market — a lot of media attention, especially after winning the World Series, a lot of eyes were on us. I think this year will probably be the same because of all the new acquisitions that we have. You just have to have a lot of confidence in yourself. You go through your ups and downs. It’s definitely easy to lose your confidence.”

Mookie Betts knows he will have to put his best foot forward this spring in order to land a starting spot in the Red Sox's outfield. Betts, however, is not trying to think as much about the competition and rather focus on what he needs to do to prepare for the 2015 season.

“I feel as if I’m just getting ready for the season,” Betts told WEEI.com. “Whether it’s in the big leagues, Triple-A, Double-A, wherever it is, I’m just getting ready for the season and not really focusing so much on making the big-league team, just really just getting ready."

If Betts doesn't win a starting job in the outfield, then he could be a bench option for Boston instead of heading back to the minors.

“Whatever [manager John] Farrell and [general manager Ben] Cherington, whatever they do is what’s going to be best for the Red Sox,” Betts said. “And if that’s me sitting and watching, that’s perfectly fine and I’ll just fill into my role.”

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Tuesday that the team isn't concerned with the recent lack of playing time for outfielder Rusney Castillo, who hadn't seen any action since 2012 before signing with the Red Sox last August, ESPN.com reports.

"That’s not an element we’re concerned with right now," Cherington said. "He’s done everything we asked him to do from the day we signed him -- going to the minor leagues, big leagues, Arizona [Fall League], Puerto Rico [winter ball] and everything in between. He’s in a position now where he comes to spring training, we met with him, told him, ‘Just be a baseball player and try to get into some kind of baseball normalcy now.’ I don’t expect the number of at-bats he’s had over the last 10 months to be a factor. Normalcy is going to play out in spring training. He has a chance to be a really good major league player. We’re happy he’s here."

Castillo is set to compete with Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley this spring to start in center field.

Red Sox reliever Edward Mujica got off to a rocky start in 2014, posting a 6.41 ERA through the first two months of the season. He eventually settled down, posting a 2.68 ERA and seven saves over the final four months.

On Friday, Mujica revealed a neck injury played a part in his early season struggles. Mujica was diagnosed with his C1 vertebrae being out of place when he signed with the Red Sox and added the issue didn't clear up until midway through the 2014 season.

“My neck was bothering me when I got here, I got treatment and in spring training I felt good because of the weather,” Mujica said, per WEEI.com. “But then I felt sore in the neck because of the cold weather. I was also adjusting to the American League, all the teams have pretty good hitters 1-9. I just kept working every single day, watching videos, got that [physical] adjustment and got going in the second half.

“The C1 was a little moved out of place, but they put it in the right place in spring training to get through the season. With treatment every single day it helped me a lot after the first two months.”

Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli had offseason surgery to correct a sleep apnea condition, and he's arrived at spring training as a new man. 

"I'm getting a lot of sleep. I'm energized, it's been good," he told Boston.com. "It's been night and day," he said. "Just my energy level. When I wake up and when I get out of bed and get my day started. Before I'd lay in bed until like one o'clock. It's totally different."

The improved sleep patterns gave Napoli more energy for offseason workouts, and he thinks it will improve his ability to recover as the season wears on. 

Napoli hit .248 with 17 home runs and 55 RBi last season.

Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez seems to be very happy with the lessons he is learning from former Red Sox catcher and captain Jason Varitek.

"Great, great teacher," Vazquez said of Varitek, per MLB.com. "I call him the Google of baseball. It's so great to have somebody like him. It's a pleasure.

"Right now, we're working on receiving and getting the ball to travel more and just let it breathe. That's helped me. Varitek tells me I need to talk to each pitcher about what he likes, what he doesn't like. It's very important to get that trust. I'm like a manager now. I need to be in charge, calling games.

"I'm ready to help this team to win and help my teammates. We have a great group of pitchers here and we're trying to win this year and get to the playoffs. I'm here to win and helping the team. I'm excited to be here."

News
Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters on Thursday that outfielder Shane Victorino will likely return to switch-hitting this season, per MLB.com.

"It's likely that he hits left-handed in games," Farrell said. "If you think about in 2013 late in the year, he switched solely to the right side because of some physical restrictions. With those being freed up now, the left-handed side of the plate comes into play."

Victorino has not hit left-handed since August 2013. That year he hit .274/.317/.389 on the left side of the box against righties. Because of a slew of injuries, Victorino remained an exclusive right-handed hitter and hit .268/.303/.382 in 123 at-bats last season.

As Major League Baseball looks to speed up the pace of play, there will surely be some detractors as the changes go into effect. Well, count Red Sox star slugger David Ortiz among the players not happy with some of the rule changes.

The nine-time All-Star expressed his disgust Wednesday when reporters asked him about the new rules, particularly the rules that hitters must keep one foot in the batter's box (except after swinging strikes), and hitters and pitchers must be ready to play right after television commercial breaks.

"It seems like every rule just goes in the pitcher's favor," Ortiz said, per the Boston Herald. "When you come out of the box, you're thinking about what the (pitcher) is trying to do. When you see guys come out of the box, they're not doing it just to do it. Our minds are spinning. I see one pitch, I come out and I think what is this guy going to do on the next pitch. If you force a hitter to do that, 70 percent you are out, because you have no time to think.

"I don't know how this baseball game is going to end up. No matter what you do, the game is not going to speed up."

Players that violate the new rules could be subject to fines. It appears Ortiz better keep his checkbook handy.

"I might run out of money. I'm not going to change my game," he said. "This game has been going on for over 100 years. It's the nature of the game. I don't care who you are, you're not going to change."

News
Red Sox infielder/outfielder Brock Holt, who started seven different positions in 2014, told reporters he's ready to prove he's just as versatile as he was last season, according to WEEI.com on Wednesday.

Holt indicated that he expects to be mostly used in the infield, despite the addition of Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez in the offseason and the emergence of Mookie Betts.

"I think kind of similar spot as last year, move around, give guys days off when they need them but be ready to play all the time," Holt said. "I'm looking forward to the opportunity to do that again and it's something I enjoyed last year and something I'm looking forward to doing again.

The majority of my [work] is probably going to be in the infield and then I'll definitely go out in the outfield and do some stuff," Holt said. "During [batting practice] it's easy to go out there and get some reads during BP, too. I'll probably spend most of my time in the infield but move around, depending on how I feel and how the day is going, move to do some outfield."
