Red Sox Add Nine Players To 60-Man Pool One Week Before Opening Day


July 17, 2020

The Boston Red Sox’s 2020 roster options continue to take shape.

The Red Sox on Friday added nine players to their 60-man player pool for the upcoming season. All were assigned to the club’s alternate training site at McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket.

The nine players include:

Jeter Downs, IF
Jarren Duran, OF
Josh Ockimey, 1B
Jhonny Pereda, C
R.J. Alvarez, RHP
Tanner Houck, RHP
Bryan Mata, RHP
Jay Groome, LHP
Bobby Poyner, LHP

The Red Sox, who now have 56 players (and four open spots) in their player pool, also reassigned four others to the alternate training site: Right-handed pitchers Mike Shawaryn and Domingo Tapia, left-handed pitcher Mike Kickham and catcher/infielder Connor Wong.

Boston earlier this week placed three left-handed pitchers — Eduardo Rodriguez, Darwinzon Hernandez and Josh Taylor — on the injured list. They’re not included among the aforementioned 56 players.

The Red Sox begins their 60-game regular-season schedule next Friday night against the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park.
