Red Sox add six non-roster invitees to spring training roster

The Red Sox’s work isn’t done this Major League Baseball offseason, but Boston’s spring training roster is starting to take shape.

The Red Sox added six non-roster invitees to their spring training roster on Wednesday: right-handed pitcher Norwith Gudino, left-handed pitcher Oddanier Mosqueda, catchers Caleb Hamilton and Ronaldo Hernandez, outfielder Narciso Crook and outfielder / gardener Niko Goodrum.

Obviously, the Red Sox could still add to their active roster through free agency and trades in the coming weeks and months. However, this represents the first wave of non-roster invitees as Boston looks to reach camp in Fort Myers, Fla., ahead of the 2023 MLB season.

Mosqueda and Hernandez both spent 2022 in the Red Sox system, with the former making 45 relief appearances with Double-A Portland and the latter in 105 games with Triple-A Worcester.

The Red Sox even recalled Hernandez for two major league stints in 2022, but he never appeared in a game with Boston. Hernandez, 25, landed with the organization as part of the February 2021 trade which sent pitchers Jeffrey Springs and Chris Mazza to the Tampa Bay Rays.

Goodrum’s the addition is remarkable, as the 30-year-old appeared in 402 major league games with the Minnesota Twins, Detroit Tigers and Houston Astros. His most major league experience came in 2018, when Goodrum slashed .245/.315/.432 with 16 home runs, 53 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 131 games (492 plate appearances) with Detroit.
