Adrian Gonzalez participated in batting practice for the first time as a member of the Boston Red Sox at the team’s facilities on Sunday morning.
Gonzalez, who is continuing his rehabilitation from offseason shoulder surgery, took a total of 25 swings in five rounds of batting practice. On his final five swings, Gonzalez belted three balls over the fence in right field.
“I was feeling good the whole time, and it felt good to get out there,” said Gonzalez. “It was good, it really was.” (via WEEI)
Gonzalez hit .298 with 31 home runs and 101 RBI with the Padres last season.
