Cleveland and Boston wrap up their 3 game series Thursday night with freezing temps expected to make a comeback.
The opener in the series was pushed back a day for wind chills in the teens and snow. While it won’t be that bad, there are snow showers expected to be in the area.
The Indians had their Home Opener spoiled thanks to a locked in David Price as their offense struggled to the dismay of many fans.
The Indians offense has typically been the biggest question mark for them over the past few seasons. With Michael Brantley and Lonnie Chisenhall both on the DL, the offense has a lot of gaps to fill. Marlon Byrd and Rajai Davis are two big keys for them in the outfield now.
Cleveland will send out RH Danny Salazar to the mound here. Salazar, along with Carrasco and Kluber, has #1 caliber stuff. His fastball reaches in the high 90s. His key is command. He’s shown signs of struggles with his command as he sometimes overthrows.
Boston Red Sox
Boston has rebuilt for 2 seasons for this season here in 2016 and they got off on the right foot in the opener. David Ortiz and Mookie Betts both homered, but it was David Price who stole the show.
The offense should be fine this season for the Red Sox, but it’s on the rotation to hold their own. Boston will send out their #3 starter here in Joe Kelly.
Kelly was one of those guys who was traded from St. Louis during the rebuilding process. He’s now a giant piece to the 2016 puzzle. Kelly finished last year 10-6 in 25 starts. His ERA sat at 4.82, which is obviously simply too high and must come down a lot here in 2016.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
Joe Kelly just has a lot of question marks around him.
If Salazar is on his game, he’s unhittable at time.
