Several players not on the 40-man roster have been invited to Red Sox spring training, the team announced Friday.
They are pitchers Matt Barnes, Henry Owens, Dalier Hinojosa, and Noe Ramirez, and utility player Heiker Meneses, shortstop Deven Marrero, catcher Blake Swihart, and first baseman Travis Shaw.
All except Meneses are participating in the team’s rookie program this week.
Red Sox pitchers and catchers report to spring training on Feb. 15, and others report on Feb. 18. The first full-squad workout is Feb. 20.
