Manager Alex Cora, a native of Puerto Rico, said he will attend and use the platform in “the right way.” Cora has been critical of comments made by President Trump about the recovery efforts in Puerto Rico after the island was devastated by Hurricane Maria in 2017.

The first workout for Red Sox pitchers and catchers in Fort Myers, Florida is Wednesday, February 13. The first full squad workout is Monday, February 18.
