The 2023 Boston Red Sox season was the 123rd season in Boston Red Sox franchise history, and their 112th season at Fenway Park. The team was led by Alex Cora, in the third season of his second stint as the team's manager.

The Red Sox began their regular season on March 30, in a home game against the Baltimore Orioles. On September 14, Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom, who joined the team following the 2019 season, was fired,[3] and Brian O'Halloran was removed as general manager, although not fired.[4] On September 20, the team was eliminated from playoff contention for the second straight season. The team's season ended on October 1, finishing with a record of 78–84, in last place of the American League East. The Red Sox ranked last in fielding among Major League Baseball (MLB) teams,[5] and were criticized for poor pitching,[6][7] lack of pitching depth, and roster management.[8][9]

Offseason

The team entered the offseason with the status of several players, most notably Xander Bogaerts, unclear due to expiring contracts or opt-out clauses.[10]
