Nothing official has been announced regarding New England Sports Network's decision on a 2014 sideline reporter for Red Sox games, but two recent NESN hires were both working the sidelines during Sunday's first spring training game telecast of the year.

Elle Duncan (above, left) and Sarah Davis (above, right) each contributed to the NESN telecast, an afternoon game against the Baltimore Orioles at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, Fla.

Using multiple NESN on-air personalities is nothing new at the network. A NESN official told today in an email that the network's "search for a Red Sox reporter is still ongoing.

"Just like last year, we will be using several NESN Sports Today reporters during Spring Training."

The Red Sox sideline reporter job was previously held by Jenny Dell who was taken off of Red Sox sideline duties by the network in the weeks following New Year's Eve revelations that she and Red Sox third-baseman Will Middlebrooks were in a relationship. Dell tweeted photos of her and Middlebrooks together on New Year's Eve:

And Middlebrooks tweeted this:

Before joining NESN, Duncan previously worked in various on-air roles in Atlanta, including stints as a sideline reporter for the NBA's Atlanta Hawks.

Davis formerly worked at Rogers Sportnet in Toronto as a reporter, anchor and host.

And while nobody at NESN is calling this a battle, many viewers have taken to Twitter to voice their opinions on their preferred reporter.

And there's this: Mike Carp of the Red Sox admiring Duncan as she walked past the dugout.
