With the start of spring training only weeks away, the Boston Red Sox roster is still full of question marks. While many of their key players are expected to return, the right side of the infield has undergone significant change. Brock Holt and Mitch Moreland remain unsigned and are not expected to return, while Dustin Pedroia has only appeared in nine games over the past two years. Despite the uncertainty, the Red Sox do have a few young players that will be relied on heavily this coming season.
With the Boston Red Sox officially eliminated from playoff contention the 2019 team will be looked back on with disappointment. A year after the best season in franchise history the Red Sox were unable to live up to expectations. Despite the inconsistencies and injuries that seemed to be never-ending, there will be a few silver linings to take from this season. One of those will be the play of Michael Chavis who made his long-anticipated major league debut and proved to be a valuable piece.
