Ciriaco to get another look in outfield
ST. PETERSBURG -- How can Pedro Ciriaco be even more valuable than he already is to the Red Sox going forward? By getting more comfortable in the outfield.

Ciriaco will make his second career start in the outfield on Thursday.

Valentine admits that it's not all that fair to Ciriaco to ask him to learn the outfield on the fly.

"It's more like a winter time, Spring Training project if he's going to be an all-purpose guy or something like that," Valentine said, "but he's there to play there if we need him. That's one of the things that [general manager] Ben [Cherington] and I discussed."
