Brainer Bonaci, one of the Red Sox’s top-ranked infield prospects, will miss the entire 2024 season.

As first reported by Alex Speier of the Boston Globe, Bonaci received a season-long suspension for violating the minor-league domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse policy. The details of Bonaci’s violation remain under wraps.

Bonaci last played for one of their affiliates on Aug. 27. He was 16 games into a promotion to Double-A when he was quietly placed on the suspended list and sent home. In early October, he was placed on the restricted list and sent home from the Arizona Fall League after two games.


The Venezuelan middle infielder signed with the Red Sox in 2018, when he was 16 years old. MLB Pipeline last ranked him as the organization’s No. 12 prospect.
