Sox Claim 3B/1B Juan Francisco Off Waivers

Apparently Spring Training Numbers Don’t Matter (Except When They Do)

Francisco makes his noise with bat

PHOENIX -- Juan Francisco is oftentimes slumped over in his locker, intently focused on his phone or iPod, seemingly oblivious to what's going on around him.
