Workouts begin for Boston battery

The Red Sox have passed yet another unofficial “beginning” to the 2011 season.

The Red Sox have passed yet another unofficial “beginning” to the 2011 season.

Pitchers and catchers took part in their first workout of spring training yesterday in Fort Myers, Fla.

The rest of the team is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, though scattered position players are already in town. The first full-team workout is Saturday, and exhibition games begin Feb. 26.

Kevin Youkilis was among the players to sit down with the media yesterday. He seemed happy with his move back to third base, thanks to the acquisition of Adrian Gonzalez.

One of his goals down the line:?a Gold Glove.

“There’s a lot of great third basemen out there,” Youkilis told reporters. “It’d be cool if I could play at a high level and win a Gold Glove at third base and first base. That’d be awesome.”
