FORT MYERS, Fla. — Boston Red Sox pitcher Jake Peavy got back on a mound Wednesday. Peavy, who was scratched from Monday’s spring training start against the Baltimore Orioles because of a laceration on his left index finger, threw his first bullpen session since suffering the injury during a fishing knife accident over the weekend. Peavy wore his normal glove during the session, although the right-hander didn’t catch return throws from the catcher. “It felt all right.

Great debate: Jason Kipnis vs. Dustin Pedroia – a changing of the guard near the top of the 2B ranks?
