Ross taking charge behind the plate for Red Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- It hasn't taken David Ross long to take control behind the plate.

The catcher, who was signed to a two-year deal over the winter, was firm and vocal while catching Jon Lester Sunday, offering tips on mechanics during the outing, then huddling with Lester to go over some issues after the outing.

"He's an encouraging catcher," said Farrell. "Just talking to guys who have thrown to him, there's been such positive feedback on the interactions that they've had, either after a bullpen or while they're actually throwing a pen and David's comments in between pitches. He encourages every guy that he catches. I think pitchers feel that connection. They feel that support from him and that's one of the reasons that make him so valuable -- the ability to get the most out of a given pitcher.

"Not only is he smart in reading swings and getting a feel for a hitter in the batter's box when he's trying to make adjustments, but he speaks with confidence to the pitcher. And I think that any time a pitcher hears that, they feel it and trust a pitch that's called at a given moment."
