*In late January 2022, the Red Sox held a "Winter Warmup" mini-camp in Ft. Myers for certain full-season minor league players not on the club's 40-man roster. The camp is not intended to be a replacement for the Rookie Development Program, which was not held in 2022 due to the lockout and the pandemic.

Red Sox Rookie Development Program Explained

The Red Sox Rookie Development Program takes place annually in January. The development program is a 10-day camp that allows the organization's major and minor league coaches to instruct near-major-league-ready prospects on life in the big leagues. The players are tutored on the physical and mental aspects of playing in the big leagues, particularly in Boston. There are sessions on dealing with the media, money management, alcohol, drugs, umpire relations, and other obstacles players may face upon reaching the major leagues. Typically, mornings are spent working out and afternoons in classrooms. The program also gives players a chance to get to know some of their fellow up-and-coming prospects who may have played at different levels during past seasons. The players are selected by Red Sox management based on projections of who may be promoted to Boston in the coming year.

Major League Baseball also runs a 4-day rookie development program each year for select major league prospects.  The Red Sox front office has sent players to that camp in lieu of or in addition to the Red Sox program in the past.  Players sent to the Major League Program are denoted with (MLB) above.
