FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox veteran reliever Joe Nelson will be fighting for a spot in the club’s bullpen this spring. The right-hander, who signed a one-year guaranteed minor-league deal with a non-roster invite to camp this offseason, says he’s throwing the ball very well this spring.

He’s definitely leading the relief staff in one category – sun tan.

“We’ve been doing a lot of running and it takes me a little longer than the other guys, so I’m nice and tan,” the 35-year-old said jokingly.
