Red Sox

Hot Stove Lunch: Familiar faces will try to repeat for Red Sox; Kikuchi to be posted

There's still some work to do on the pitching staff, but when it comes to position players, the Red Sox are bringing back virtually their entire roster for 2019.

At this point, the only non-returning member will likely be infielder Ian Kinsler. Barring an unforeseen trade, the Sox will return every starter in the infield, outfield, behind the plate and at DH. That's highly rare at a time when turnover is the norm.

But Brock Holt is happy to see it.
