Boston Red Sox
The Sox are banged up and, suddenly, an organization flush with talent feels a little thin, just less than a season-and-a-half into Dave Dombrowski’s regime.
Kyle Kendrick got an emergency start on Thursday, a little ironic considering the Red Sox traded away Clay Buchholz for nothing because he was of no use to them.
Eddie Rodriguez is still around, though, and he will start game one of this weekend’s series with a Twins team that had won four in a row prior to a loss on Thursday.
Rodriguez was great on Sunday Night Baseball against the Cubs last weekend and you’re starting to feel like he’s realizing his potential for a Boston team that would be so very welcome to that idea.
Phil Hughes has made plenty of starts against the Red Sox in his career and they’ve roughed him up (5.36 career ERA). The current Boston roster hits .356 against him as a team, led by Dustin Pedroia at .390 (16 for 41).
This season, Hughes has been more hittable than usual, opponents hitting .304 against him. But he’s managed because he’s only walked four compared to 17 strikeouts.
He gave up 10 hits at Kansas City in the last start he made.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction: the runs come early and often to send this one way over.
The Sox should hit Hughes, however poor their offense has been (though Hanley Ramirez is heating up). Eduardo Rodriguez has been good but he’s often really bad when we least expect it.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over 9.0 (-110)
The Twinkies put up six early and chase the lefty in the fourth.
