Boston Red Sox DFS SPIN

Nathan Eovaldi struck out seven and allowed five runs (three earned) on six hits over 5 2/3 innings pitched in Saturday's Grapefruit League loss to the Pirates. In his longest start of the spring, Eovaldi looked like he was in mid-season form. He retired 11 of the first 12 batters he faced before allowing a home run to Michael Chavis in the top of the fourth. He'll wrap up his spring training with a very strong 16/0 K/BB and a 3.55 ERA over 12 2/3 innings pitched. Next stop, an Opening Day matchup against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

Gerrit Cole held the Tigers to one run in 3 1/3 innings on Friday. Cole struck out five and got 12 swings and misses in a 60-pitch outing. His next start will come on five days' rest against the Red Sox on Opening Day.


The under is 10-3-1 in the last 14 meetings between these two teams and is 4-1-1 in the last six meetings in New York. The under is also 8-3-1 in the Yankees’ last 12 home games when the total has been set between 7 and 8.5 runs and is 15-6-1 in their last 22 divisional matchups.
