The BoSox Injection staff ranks the top handful of players in Boston Red Sox history at each position.
The search for the best Red Sox lineup of all time has gone through starting pitchers, catchers, first baseman, second baseman, third baseman and now turns its attention to short.
While other positions, mostly third base, could be black holes for the team in 2017, the Red Sox are set with Xander Bogaerts at the moment. He won’t be making the present list, but with two Silver Slugger awards at just 24-years-old, he has a great chance of making a climb up the rankings.
A quick look throughout the history of the franchise shows that the Red Sox have been familiar with great players at short. Between all-star nominations and having parts of the stadium named after them, some of the greatest Red Sox of all time have been shortstops.
