The Boston Red Sox will be in the middle of a tight postseason race following the All-Star break. Boston losing nine of its last 12 games before Sunday's finale has set them back in the Wild Card chase, so getting off on the right foot to begin the second half is imperative.
Red Sox manager Alex Cora has revealed his plans for the team's rotation once their schedule picks back up on Friday.
Cora said Nathan Eovaldi will take the mound to lead Boston out of the All-Star break. Chris Sale seems like the potential No. 2 assuming his start on Sunday goes well, while Rich Hill and Michael Wacha will need a little extra time before they return to the rotation.
The Red Sox start the second half with a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays. Boston has a trio of three-game tilts versus Toronto down the stretch of the season, which could turn out to be very important in determining the final Wild Card standings.
The looming MLB Trade Deadline presents an opportunity for the Red Sox to bring in some much-needed reinforcements to finish strong during the final few months. For now, they are +4000 (T-No. 9) in FanDuel Sportsbook's World Series odds.
