The Boston Red Sox supporters are hoping that manager Alex Cora can turn things around this season after a dismal 2023 campaign.

With club options for the 2023 and 2024 seasons, Cora’s two-year deal with the Red Sox, which manager signed in the 2020 offseason, is coming to an end. This season, the 48-year-old boss has a lot to prove. But Red Sox supporters shouldn’t anticipate speaking with or seeing Cora on Wednesday during Spring Training.

Cora is not at Spring Training due to a stomach ailment, according to a report published by Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe on Wednesday morning. On the first day for pitchers and catchers, the club was scheduled to meet in the morning with the seasoned manager.

Fans should not panic, though, as 48-year-old Cora is expected to return this week or whenever he feels better. As the rotation is in flux and the team may move a few relief pitchers before Opening Day, it will be intriguing to watch how Spring Training plays out at Fenway South.

But as the Red Sox attempt to contend with the other teams in the AL East (the New York Yankees, Toronto Blue Jays, Tampa Bay Rays, and Baltimore Orioles), we are confident Cora will have his team primed for action this season.
