In past springs, any Sox controversy has centered around Frank Thomas. This spring, Williams expects peace, because Thomas' contract is running out and Williams seems determined not to push his DH into action after foot surgery last fall.
"I have not seen him," Williams said. "I'm sure I will on the 21st (when position players report)."
Will Thomas be recovered enough to go through drills next week?
"We won't gauge where he is until he shows up," Williams said. "A lot can happen in two weeks, and it has been two weeks since his last [rehabilitation] report."
That report put Thomas "on schedule for mid-March," Williams said. "During his rehab, he has not pushed himself for spring-training activities. But I think the most important person to listen to [about his health] is Frank."
Could Thomas be working out full tilt before Ordonez does with his new team, the Tigers? No one is sure when Ordonez will be cleared for full drills after left knee surgeries that started last summer and continued into the fall. Those surgeries led to a falling out after Ordonez claimed Williams was spreading misleading injury information.
"I will," Williams acknowledged, "be peeking out of the corner of my eye" at news coming from Tigers camp in Lakeland, Fla.
