7/23 Pitchers Vs Hitters Matchups: Sale Day at the Trop

Sox look to ensure a series win tonight as Sale takes the mound, aiming for his 2nd Win in a row. More stability is needed among the pitching staff. While Rodriguez went seven strong, the bullpen behind him (Eovaldi, Taylor) gave up four runs and COULD’VE BEEN more. The Rays were one swing away from making it a save situation, and having to use Brandon Workman.

Mitch Moreland makes his long awaited return to the big league club, with Chavis expected to land on the IL. This gives Sam Travis a longer stint in the majors.
