Obviously, The Red Sox will travel on the road to Tropicana Field on Friday evening as they open a three-game series against the American League East-leading Tampa Bay Rays.
And The Rays have jumped out to a surprising six-game lead in the AL East race after compiling a 14-4 record through the first 18 games of the season.
Perhaps equally as surprising, the defending World Series Champion Red Sox have won just six of their first 19 contests
As they’ve dug themselves into an 8.5-game deficit in the division race just three weeks into the regular season.
Can Boston make up ground in the AL East race with a series-opening victory on the road on Friday night
Tampa Bay is expected to counter with right-hander Ryne Stanek for the opening inning on Friday night.
The 27-year-old took on a similar role in Tampa Bay last season making 29 starts and 30 relief appearances en route to a 2.98 ERA and a 2-3 overall record. Stanek isn’t going to be in there for long though
As the right-hander will only be tasked with getting between three and six outs to start the game. Stanek has been solid for the Rays so far this season
Allowing just two earned runs and striking out 13 batters in 9 plus innings of work to enter with a 1.93 ERA
Boston is expected to hand the ball to left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez to the hill
And of course, definitely, at the Trop as they try to cut into their deficit versus the division-leading Rays.
Rodriguez is off to a rocky start to the season, but is he coming off of his best outing.
The Red Sox lefty notched his first win of 2019 in his last start an eight-inning, eight strikeout gem at home versus the Baltimore Orioles. For the first time all season
Rodriguez did not walk a batter, however, he’s surrendered a long ball in each of his first three starts.
Actually, Tampa Bay is coming off of a series win at home versus the Baltimore Orioles and they have won all of their series so far this season.
