FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Ron Roenicke is trying to get up to speed quickly after taking over as interim Red Sox manager on the eve of spring training. On his first day in the top job, Roenicke had to remind himself that he couldn't just pitch in on the practice fields like he used to. Roenicke was promoted to replace Alex Cora, who was shoved out after he was identified as the ringleader of a sign-stealing scheme when he was with the Astros. Roenicke's first big problem came when he learned ace Chris Sale has a case of pneumonia.
