The Boston Red Sox had a plethora of injuries in 2012. Twenty-seven players, including several major contributors, served a combined 34 stints on the disabled list.
One promising Red Sox player will already land on the DL before the 2013 season even starts.
To address the recent flux of injuries, the team even added a new medical director, Dr. Larry Ronan, according to ESPN Boston.
Ben Cherington addressed the importance of health for the Red Sox to be competitive.
"We know we need to keep players on the field more in order to have success."
While one player will likely land on the DL, several other key players look to bounce back after their season-ending injuries in 2012.
Without these major contributors on the field, it will be very difficult for the Red Sox to be successful in 2013.
The slideshow features injury updates on all of them.
