News: Ramirez arrived at the Red Sox camp in Fort Myers on Thursday and began drills in the outfield, the Boston Globe reports.
Impact: Ramirez is in camp a bit early to get himself acclimated to playing left field after being a shortstop for most of his career. Reports indicate he was comfortable fielding balls on the ground, but less so going back on line drives. He's got another seven weeks to adjust, so there's nothing to worry about yet.

News: Ramirez plans to arrive at spring training on Feb. 9, two weeks before position players are scheduled to arrive, Comcast SportsNet New England reports.
Impact: Ramirez will use the additional time to work on his new position, left field. But even before he arrives in Fort Myers, he has begun preparation for the outfield back in his native Dominican Republic.
