Another youngster, Xander Bogaerts, is the shortstop with 2013 starter Stephen Drew unsigned.
"We have plenty enough in this (locker) room to do what we want to get done," Peavy said, "and that’s to win a world championship."
Farrell is confident his players will move beyond the title they won last year.
"There’ll be a ring ceremony. There’ll be a trip to the White House. Those are reminders that they should enjoy," he said, "but our focus is on what we need to do today."
Notes: LHP Andrew Miller and the Red Sox agreed to a one-year contract worth $1.903,125, avoiding arbitration. Miller had asked for $2.15 million and had been offered $1.55 million. He made $1,475,000 last year, when he went 1-2 with a career-best 2.64 ERA and 48 strikeouts in 37 games. He had season-ending surgery on his left foot July 15. Boston has no remaining players in arbitration. ... Peavy said he had irritation in his right ring finger but called it a "non-issue." ... Red Sox closer Koji Uehara threw lightly off the rubber. ... Farrell said there was nothing new to report on whether Drew might return to the Red Sox.
