I found a link for all teams' pitcher/catcher and full squad report dates, and it got me wondering:

(1) Who actually sets the dates? Is it the MLB front office or does each individual club have the freedom to determine it? And, if it is the latter...

(2) Why, oh why, are the Sox reporting last? With so many returning players having come off career lows, you'd think we'd take every opportunity to improve our position for next year, whether it's extra BP, more conditioning, or building new manager/coaching staff/player chemistry.

Also of note from the article, Seattle's entire team will be at ST before a single other team's pitchers and catchers report. Pretty impressive.
