FOR MYERS, Fla. -- Right fielder Shane Victorino and right-hander Alfredo Aceves were in the Sox clubhouse early Sunday morning, before leaving to go to the WBC today, joining Team USA and Mexico, respectively.

  • Left fielder Jonny Gomes could be back in the lineup Tuesday against Team Puerto Rico. He hasn’t played since opening a gash on his left knee when he collided with the outfield fence during Wednesday’s game against the Orioles in Sarasota.
  • Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who has not played since Wednesday, is in the lineup today, serving as the DH, batting seventh.
  • John Farrell said the Sox roster could have some cuts by the middle of the week.
  • Will Middlebrooks will again serve as the Sox' player rep this year.
