The name of each player is followed by the position they primarily played with the Red Sox – which may be different from the position they primarily played during their career – and then by their years with the team, and finally by any major awards won while with the Red Sox. Players currently with the team are listed in bold. A name listed in "bold and italics" indicates that the individual is a first year player with the Red Sox or a rookie. Names in just "italics" are the players who have "defected" to the New York Yankees.
