If you read this Tweet and start jumping to conclusions before you get to the end - it might be kinda scary. Okay, maybe that only happened to me?

Phew! They aren’t going anywhere. Well, they ARE going to Miami for some extra development which is great. It’s a pretty cool program that teaches players how to deal with media, handles clubhouse situations, etc. The aim of the program is help players with these non baseball-y skills so they can focus more on the game.

Last year, Williams Jerez and Ty Buttrey went while they were members of the Red Sox.
