Live from Port Charlotte: First workout



UPDATE, 9:53: All 38 pitchers and catchers reported for today's first workout, and 13 of the 21 position players have already checked in. B.J. Upton showed up today and said he is a a few pounds heavier (up to 190) and "a little bit stronger" after working out at Yo Murphy's Fight Factory gym in Tampa.

RHP Brandon Gomes, still behind a bit after back surgery, will throw his first bullpen session today with the rest of his group. Luke Scott threw from a distance of 120 feet on Monday as he continues his recovery from shoulder surgery.

BREAKING: The Rays will be taking the field at about 10 a.m. for the first workout of the spring.

Half the pitchers will throw bullpen sessions today, the other group on Wednesday.

Among those to throw today are Jeff Niemann, Jeremy Hellickson and Josh Lueke. Those sessions start at around 11.

All 38 pitchers and catchers are expected in camp, we'll see soon if all made it.
