Boston Red Sox
After a stellar start to the season, Price had a doozy against the New York Yankees only making it one inning giving up four earned off of three hits while striking out one and walking two. The rough start can be attributed to Price losing feeling in his left hand, but claims his hand is feeling fine now.
That has to be a scary feeling, especially losing the feeling in the money-making arm. He’ll be working with an extra days rest, so expect a nice bounce-back performance against a Los Angeles lineup that is only slashing .231/.288/.401 in 147 at-bats against him.
Boston’s lineup has been red hot slashing .310/.377/.514 while hitting 29 extra-base hits and 41 RBI in the last week. They have an excellent BB:K ratio of 57:100.
Los Angeles Angels
Due to weather, Ohtani’s start on Sunday was postponed to Tuesday, so while the extra rest is nice, it can be frustrating as well prepping yourself for that start to only have it pushed back a couple of days. I expect him to use his time wisely and study this potent Red Sox lineup.
Ohtani is taking the MLB by storm proving that he is that dual threat that everyone was talking about over seas. Even though it is still very early in the season, his pitching stat line is impressive owning a 2.08 ERA and 1.75 FIP to go along with a 12.46 K/9 and 1.38 BB/9.
Even the hitting has been impressive with a slash line of .367/.424/.767 to go along with three home runs and 11 RBI in just 33 plate appearances. He is bound to get a heavy dose of regression, but enjoy the ride while it lasts.
Like Boston, Los Angeles’ lineup has been red-hot as well slashing .333/.383/.502 to go along with 18 extra-base hits and 42 RBI in the last week. They’ve done well with their plate discipline owning a 42:109 BB:K ratio.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction: Red Sox hand Ohtani his first loss
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Boston +117
Price has had plenty of rest and time to prep for this matchup. Ohtani has been fortunate enough to face a bleak Oakland Athletics lineup twice in his only starts, now he’s about to face the hottest lineup in the MLB. The Red Sox lineup has smacked 29 extra-base hits in the last week compared to the Angel’s 18. Back the road dogs with the more experienced pitcher.
