Mike Cameron Happy to Be Back Playing, But Still Embracing Mentor Role

First things first. After a 2010 season that was ended in July and that only saw him play in 48 Red Sox games, Mike Cameron is ready to get back on the field and help the team. While that may not come everyday, his off-field contributions will surely continue to make an impact.

Cameron was on Red Sox Live on Tuesday to talk about a very interesting offseason. While he's now healed following a rough 2010, it's likely that Cameron won't get a ton of playing time with a healthy Jacoby Ellsbury returning, as well as the offseason signing of Carl Crawford.

The veteran centerfielder, though, insists he's ready to contribute in whatever way he can, and it's clear that his work in helping bring along players like Darnell McDonald and Ryan Kalish is going a long way.
