Red Sox rookie program gets underway

The Red Sox rookie program got started at Fenway Park on Monday. The weeklong event is designed for prospects who are close to joining the major league team.

The program includes two workouts each day that focus on conditioning and fundamentals. There are also seminars and community events. The players will visit Boston Children’s Hospital and will paint murals at the McKinley Middle School in Boston.

Speakers include Larry Lucchino, Ben Cherington, John Farrell, Greg Colbrunn, Juan Nieves, and Dana LeVangie along with head athletic trainer Rick Jameyson and therapist Dan Dyrek. Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge also will address the group.

The 10 participants this season are RHP Matt Barnes, 3B Garin Cecchini, RHP Dalier Hinojosa, LHP Henry Owens, SS Deven Marrero, RHP Noe Ramirez, RHP Anthony Ranaudo, 1B Travis Shaw, C Blake Swihart, and C Christian Vazquez.

Barnes, Cecchini, Owens, Marreo, Ranaudo, Swihart, and Vazquez are among the top prospects in the organization. Hinojosa, a 27-year-old Cuban, was signed in October for $4.25 million.

Seven players who participated in the program last year — Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley, Drake Britton, Rubby De La Rosa, Brock Holt, Allen Webster, and Steven Wright — advanced to the majors.
