Boston Red Sox
It was actually Steven Wright yesterday in the series opener with the Tigers, which means Eddie Rodriguez starts on Saturday afternoon.
He will try to even the series after the Tigers won an entertaining 6-5 ball game that went back and forth at Comerica Park.
Boston was without Mookie Betts and Hanley Ramirez because of an illness going around the clubhouse. Xander Bogaerts was also unavailable because of a death in the family. It’s unclear if any of those three will be back on Saturday. My guess is that at least Betts and Bogaerts will be back.
Hopefully because this is the one I’ve been looking to back Boston in, going up against a questionable Jordan Zimmermann.
The concerns started last year when Zim had to go on the DL with a stiff neck. He took some time off, came back and wasn’t any better than when he was forced to hit the DL.
He was shoddy all Spring Training and when the Tigers were raining out on Wednesday, Jim Leyland chose to skip him on Thursday and Friday so he could start this game.
I have some questions about whether or not Zimmermann is the same guy that I used to love backing in Washington. Saturday should provide some answers.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction: Boston scores plenty.
Pablo Sandoval hit a bit homer yesterday and I think the rest of the Boston bats get going under the afternoon sun. The question then is: Sox side or the over? That depends on E-Rod.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Boston -105
I’m going to go with the side. E-Rod can be tough and with a fresh arm, I’ll get behind him to out-pitch JZ.
