3/5/2015 | Kelly struggles in first Grapefruit League start

Joe Kelly's first start of Spring Training on Thursday against the Twins proved to be one he'd rather forget. Ineffective in 1 2/3 innings, Kelly allowed four runs on seven hits in a 9-8 loss.

The Red Sox, already with a reputation of having one of the top farm systems in baseball, are to be on the cusp of adding to their prospect coffers with Yoan Moncada.

For all the talk to this point in Spring Training about the improved first-step quickness of Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts, the other area he's gotten quicker in is every bit as important.
