Red Sox Vs NYY MLB Series of The Week

The beginning of the baseball season signals the return of summer and this weekend will be the first baseball-filled weekend of 2015. And our first MLB series of the week will feature the biggest rivalry in all of baseball: The Boston Red Sox Vs. the New York Yankees.

Miley comes over to Boston having compiled a 1.40 WHIP (walks plus hits per inning pitched) with Arizona in the National League last season. He does have some experience versus New York batters, though. Carlos Beltran is 1 for 7 and Chase Headley is 3 for 17. The key batter for the Yankees should be Brian McCann who has gone 2 for 3 versus Miley for a .667 average.

Eovaldi posted a 1.80 ERA during 2 spring training appearances. He will be looking to carry that over to this Friday matchup versus the Red Sox. Pablo Sandoval, one of the Red Sox prize signings during the spring, has owned Eovaldi. Big Panda has 8 hits, a home run and 9 RBIs versus Eovaldi. Big Panda could help Boston get to a big road win versus their rivals in Game 1.

The thirty-year-old Bucholz was terrific versus the Phillies on April 6. Things could be different for the Red Sox ace this Saturday because he hasn’t had great success versus the Yankees. Alex Rodriguez, who went 1 for 2 with a walk versus the Blue Jays in his first regular season game after the yearlong suspension, is 10 out of 25 lifetime versus Bucholz with 2 home runs. Brett Gardner is 6 out of 25 versus Bucholz.

Adam Warren, the fifth starter in New York’s rotation, has had some success versus the Yankees. Daniel Nava is 4 out of 9 for a .444 average versus Warren, but both Shane Victorino and David Ortiz are only 1 out of 5 versus Warren. The Yankee starter could surprise those looking to cash in on the Red Sox ace this Saturday.

Projected Pitchers: Boston: Joe Kelly (R) vs New York: Mashiro Tanaka (R)
Date: Apr. 12 2015 
Start Time: 8:00 p.m. ET

Wright is filling in for Joe Kelly while Kelly gets healthy. There is limited information on Wright versus the Yankees. He’s only faced Chris Young, Brendan Ryan and John Ryan Murphy. There isn’t enough information to assess how well Wright is going to be versus the rest of the Yankees.

When it comes to Tanaka versus the Red Sox batters, there’s enough to say that Yankees fans might walk out of the stadium with their heads down on Sunday. Tanaka has given up 18 hits off of 55 at bats. Not only that, but Tanaka is pitching through an injury. The Red Sox could tee off on the Yankee ace on Sunday.
