2013 Boston Red Sox: Early Projections for Boston's Final 25-Man Roster

The Red Sox are hoping that a lot of offseason changes will lead to a more successful season in 2013.

Although spring training may have just begun, it is never too early to look at early projections for the Boston Red Sox’s final 25-man roster.

With Boston having a 2013 payroll of approximately $162 million, according to WEEI’s Alex Speier, the team is loaded with many veteran players. Despite having such an experienced squad, not every spot on the roster has been locked up.

With emerging talented young players and others returning from serious injuries and/or disappointing 2012 seasons, there are plenty of situations worth watching in Fort Myers.

The Red Sox disappointed many last year with a 93-loss season that had as many behind-the-scenes issues appearing in the papers as box scores. This season, the team is seeking to create a more positive clubhouse environment, which The Boston Globe's Peter Abraham writes is starting with new manager John Farrell.

Through all the training, evaluation and re-calibrating, a final team will be assembled in time for the first regular season game of the year on April 1 against the New York Yankees.
