Red Sox Opening Day infield

  • Triston Casas (1B)
  • Bobby Dalbec (2B)
  • Trevor Story (SS)
  • Rafael Devers (3B)
  • Connor Wong (C)
  • Reese McGuire (C)
  • Enmanuel Valdez (INF)
  • Pablo Reyes (INF)

Triston Casas, Trevor Story and Rafael Devers own their spots in the infield. With Grissom injured, the Red Sox will likely turn to Bobby Dalbec, their most experienced backup. He's played 294 games with the Sox and he's shown flashes of power at the plate.

Enmanuel Valdez and Pablo Reyes will hold the infield bench spots. Dalbec has been getting more playing time in spring training and he's posted better offensive numbers than Valdez and Reyes while facing slightly more difficult pitching.
