Moves are slowly being made in the minor league camp. Today, three players were transferred from the Triple-A team to Double-A: first baseman Lars Anderson and infielders Yamaico Navarro and Ryan Khoury.
The final rosters will not be put together until next Friday. For now, some of this year's Sea Dogs are still on the Triple-A team as eventual Triple-A players are still on the major league club.
Anderson has already spent over a year on the Sea Dogs roster but because of his difficulty last year (.233 average), the Red Sox thought Portland was the best place for Anderson to "rebound," according to Mike Hazen, Boston's Director of Player Development.
Others already on the Double-A roster include catcher Luis Exposito and relievers Blake Maxwell and Bryce Cox.Tweet
