4/5: Hitter / Pitcher Matchups

Welcome to the Red Sox Home Opener matchups brought to you by Sox Signatures!

If you’re headed to Fenway this afternoon, be sure to bundle up as it certainly does not feel like spring just yet.

However, the weather does not deter the Red Sox from taking on the Tampa Bay Rays at 2:05 PM ET.

The Rays have experienced some early season injury trouble, losing Nathan Eovaldi and Brent Honeywell to potential season-ending injuries. The team has announced that it will partake in multiple bullpen days in an attempt to plug holes in the rotation.

2018 Head-to-Head:

These teams met to begin the young 2018 season with the Red Sox taking 2 of 3 against their AL East opponents.

The Red Sox lefty stifled the Rays lineup through 7 strong inning in their first matchup this season. Over his career, Price has posted a 3.45 ERA against the Rays. Additionally, he’ll look to lower his 3.12 ERA at Fenway Park.
