While the snow is still covering the ground in Boston, just three days separate us from the start of the Red Sox first game of the spring.

The Red Sox can officially put their 2014 last place finish behind them, and rinse the bad taste out of their mouths on Tuesday with their annual split-squad meeting between Northeastern University and Boston College. Manager John Farrell announced on Thursday that Clay Buchholz and Rick Porcello would see action in the bout against Northeastern. While southpaw Wade Miley and knuckleballer Steven Wright are scheduled to throw two innings as well in the game against Boston College. This presents the possibility that right-hander Joe Kelly will start Boston’s first major league spring training game against the Minnesota Twins on Thursday.
