NASHVILLE, Tenn. — After a one-year hiatus, the Red Sox will once again conduct their Rookie Development Program this coming January. The program helps to familiarize players who are likely to be considered for addition to the big league roster within a 12- to 18-month window with Boston, Fenway Park and team officials.
This year’s class of attendees will be fairly prospect-rich. Among those in attendance, according to a Red Sox team source, will be a number of players who were added to the 40-man roster in the past two years:
LHP Drake Britton
C Dan Butler
OF Alex Hassan
RHP Rubby De La Rosa
C Christian Vazquez
RHP Allen Webster
RHP Steven Wright
Additionally, the Sox will include some of their top prospects as non-roster invitees to the program, including:
SS Xander Bogaerts
OF Jackie Bradley Jr.
OF Bryce Brentz
LHP Chris Hernandez
That list is not necessarily a complete one, but it represents an interesting ensemble of young talent that is reaching the upper levels.
A couple additional minor league notes:
