The Dominican Summer League Red Sox, often called the DSL Red Sox, are a Minor League Baseball affiliate of the Boston Red Sox of Major League Baseball, playing in the foreign Dominican Summer League. The team, classed as a Rookie League franchise, plays at the El Toro Complex in the Dominican Republic.

For the 2019 Boston Red Sox season, the field coordinator is José Zapata, and the Red Sox are fielding two teams; one managed by Fernando Tatís and the other managed by Ozzie Chavez.[1]

History[edit]

The Red Sox have fielded at least one team in the DSL each season since 1996; the team that season was a cooperative with the Houston Astros. Since 1997, the Red Sox have fielded their own team. In some seasons, the Red Sox have fielded two teams in the league, "DSL Red Sox 1" and "DSL Red Sox 2". This was the case in 2003, and since 2015, with the exception of 2017.[2]

In several seasons, the Red Sox have fielded a cooperative team with one or more other MLB clubs; this was the case in 1989 (with the Baltimore Orioles and Milwaukee Brewers), 1990 (with the Detroit Tigers and San Diego Padres), 1996 (with the Astros), 2000 (with the Arizona Diamondbacks), and 2001 (with the Cleveland Indians).

The DSL Red Sox reached the league championship series in 2014, and DSL Red Sox 1 won the league championship series in 2016.[3]

Notable alumni include Hanley Ramírez, who played with the team in 2001,[4][5] Xander Bogaerts, who hit .314 with the team during the 2010 season,[6] and Rafael Devers, who hit .337 with the team during the 2014 season.[6]
