Red Sox OF Carp hopes new uniform nets new results

Posted: Updated:

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Mike Carp is eager for his new start with his new team in a new season, and seems ready to finally forget the nightmare that was 2012.

Playing left field for Seattle on opening night last year, Carp was injured trying to make a diving catch. It was the first time he was on a season-opening roster and wanted to impress. Instead, he suffered a right shoulder sprain and was on the disabled list until May 1. And he didn't even make the catch.

Fast forward to Friday. After being acquired by Boston Wednesday, his mood - and his uniform - had changed dramatically.

As he worked out, Carp spoke about the Red Sox tradition, and his excitement to be a part of it. He's also now a part of a reclamation project, as Boston tries to undo a 69-93 season.
