Thanks to Mike Andrews and the excellent folks at Sox Prospects, the rosters for the Florida instructional league are available online for your perusal. There will be 40 members of the Red Sox organization down there as of this weekend, getting more work in to prepare for 2013 and their future as prospects. Or, in the case of John Lackey, to get himself better prepared for the rigors of a starting job in the majors once more.
Instructionals are basically an extended version of rookie league, and is used mostly for those who have been drafted recently, as well as players who could use a bit more seasoning. Matt Barnes was in instructionals last year, before making his pro debut in 2013.
There are loads of 2012 draftees included here, even if they already played in short-season ball. Deven Marrero, Mike Augliera, Justin Haley, and plenty more we already covered this year in our Lowell Spinners updates are all involved. Full rosters after the jump, or at Sox Prospects.
