BOSTON — Approximately 90 minutes before the start of their 2023 campaign on Thursday, the Red Sox announced their official Opening Day roster.
The official group comes after days of piecing it together given the handful of roster moves by the organization.

All five pitchers moved to the 15-day injured list are retroactive to March 27.
Among the most noteworthy to be left off of Boston’s Opening Day roster are infielder Bobby Dalbec and outfielder Jarren Duran, who both were optioned to Triple-A Worcester earlier this week. Chang and Tapia, respectively, earned the final infielder and outfielder spot on the 26-man roster.
