The return of John Farrell will help several pitchers, including Jon Lester, bounce back in 2013.

You read that right. 15.

There are 15 players on the Red Sox roster who will be better in 2013 than they were in 2012.

For a team that won just 69 games with a $170-plus million payroll, the Red Sox likely won’t regress again in 2013. This is the same team that’s averaged 93.2 wins per season from 2002 to 2011.

The Red Sox dumped Bobby Valentine and brought back old pitching coach, John Farrell, as the new manager.

The team acquired David Ross, who’s not a great hitting catcher, but he’s a great fielding catcher who calls games well and posted a significantly better catcher’s ERA than Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

And, on top of that, numerous All-Stars and rising stars will enter the new season healthy or with a chip on their shoulder.

The Red Sox will bounce back from a tumultuous 2012 season, and here are 15 players who will regain form in 2013.
