The Red Sox Tuesday announced the participants in the team’s 2014 Rookie Development Program. The program takes place from Jan. 13-18 in Boston and seeks to familiarize prospects thought to be within 18 months of playing in Boston with the team’s major league staffers.
The participating prospects are RHP Matt Barnes, 3B Garin Cecchini, RHP Dalier Hinojosa, SS Deven Marrero, LHP Henry Owens, RHP Noe Ramirez, RHP Anthony Ranaudo, 1B Travis Shaw, C Blake Swihart, and C Christian Vazquez.
Barnes, Swihart, Marrero, and Ranaudo are former first-round picks. The Sox signed Hinojosa out of Cuba this winter. Barnes, Ranaudo, Hinojosa, Vazquez, and Ramirez potentially could help the MLB team this season.
