Ready or not, the Red Sox will start the season in 11 days. And with four players from their projected Opening Day roster, including David Ortiz, likely going on the disabled list, they aren’t as ready as they would like

But Ben Cherington isn’t discouraged.

“We’re feeling good about the group we have here,” the general manager told the Herald yesterday. “You always want to be 100 percent healthy, and we are not 100 percent healthy. But the (injuries) we have going on are things that guys will recover from, and there have been a lot of other encouraging things in camp.”

To name two, Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz have combined to yield only three runs in 331⁄3 innings and more closely resemble their All-Star track records than the punching bags who so often let the Red Sox down last season. And there’s prized outfield prospect Jackie Bradley Jr., who recorded his 19th and 20th hits of the spring here yesterday against the New York Yankees to hike his average to .444.

None of this distracts from the Sox’ problems, namely that Ortiz remains hobbled by two aching heels and that replacing his middle-of-the-order power is impossible. Veteran shortstop Stephen Drew is coping with lingering concussion symptoms, and with relievers Craig Breslow and Franklin Morales slowed by shoulder and back injuries, respectively, Andrew Miller is the lone lefty in the bullpen.

Cherington, however, isn’t frantically dialing the phone to acquire reinforcements.

“If there’s a move to be made, we haven’t uncovered it yet. It hasn’t emerged,” Cherington said. “In other words, there’s nothing going on. As spring training gets to a close, sometimes teams get motivated to do certain things. You never say never, but we’re really not focused on that right now.”
