Boston Red Sox
Boston salvaged a game against New York with a 5–4 win on Thursday night in the Bronx.
Hanley Ramirez and JD Martinez drove in all five Boston runs from the middle of the lineup and Eduardo Rodriguez gave up just one hit in five innings of work.
The Red Sox lineup doesn’t look nearly as long and formidable as it did when everyone was clicking during that hot start. Dustin Pedroia’s return will change things but Xander Bogaerts is slowing down and Rafael Devers’ struggles are real in his sophomore season.
Devers’ case is interesting because it wasn’t the plan to call him up at such an early age last season but Boston made the move out of necessity. It worked out all right so it was just assumed he would remain the starting third baseman.
It will likely work out because he is so talented with the bat but I can’t help but worry a bit about his development. He isn’t making a lot of contact and isn’t doing a whole lot, except pop a homer every once and a while.
Toronto Blue Jays
I like Toronto as a big underdog in the opener with Aaron Sanchez on the hill. I like it a little less with Marco Estrada in this game.
As Estrada loses velocity, his changeup becomes less effective and I don’t see either of those things getting better. He’s on the wrong side of the hill but he can still get outs.
Still, if the Jays are to win this game they are more than likely going to have to score some runs off of David Price. That isn’t an impossible feat.
Price was hit hard in Texas in his last start and scratched a couple of days ago because of what was described as mild carpal tunnel syndrome.
