The Red Sox introduced Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez on Tuesday.
Sandoval will play third base, but Ramirez will shift from shortstop to left field due to the presence of 22-year-old Xander Bogaerts.
That means incumbent left fielder Yoenis Cespedes will have to find a new position.

On Tuesday, Red Sox manager John Farrell was asked where Cespedes will play once the season starts.
"Either center or right," Farrell told MLB.com.
In his three major league seasons between the A's and Red Sox, Cespedes has started 269 games in left field and 65 games in center field. He has never played a major league game in right field.
Farrell noted that the Red Sox haven't spoken to the 29-year-old Cuban about the position switch.
"We had a chance to speak to him [Monday]. To his credit, he's just eager to do whatever is needed by this team. He's showing that he's a complete team player. And we're excited to have his versatility be at our disposal at those other two spots. Whether it's center, right -- we'll determine that once we get to camp," Farrell said.
