Red Sox Roster Recap 2016

Xander Bogaerts, Dustin Pedroia and Jackie Bradley

Welcome to BP Boston’s new Roster Recap series! Over the next four months, we’ll be breaking down every player on Boston’s 40-man roster and many of their top prospects in order to provide a comprehensive overview of the Red Sox roster’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as what we can expect moving forward. There’s no better time than the offseason to review the best (there was some best!) and worst (there was a lot of worst!) of the past year in red and navy.

Here, you can find a comprehensive list of every player we’ve covered as a part of the Roster Recap series. Enjoy!
