Game 1: Eduard Rodriguez (1-1, 2.80) vs Lance Lynn (4-1, 2.75)
Game 2: Rick Porcello (2-5, 4.01) vs Mike Leake (4-2, 1.94)

Q: Who the hell put together this schedule? A three game homestand followed by 2 @ STL, 4 @ OAK, back home for 6 with TEX & SEA, then back out to CWS? Sheesh.

To this point, Betts has more extra-base hits (17) and walks (15) than strikeouts (10). He and Joey Votto are the only two big league regulars this year who have more extra-base hits and walks than strikeouts. In a way, Betts is continuing to combine a broader array of skills than anyone else in the big leagues.Speier

Brock Holt had been scheduled to play nine innings at third base on Monday for Triple A Pawtucket in one of the final steps in his return to the active roster from his vertigo-induced trip to the disabled list. After he went 0-for-3 while committing an error, however, Holt left the game in the fifth inning due to a recurrence of symptoms. Any notion that he would soon re-insert himself into the Red Sox’ mix at third base now will take a back seat to considerations of his health.Speier

The third base position has been less than for the Red Sox so far this season, but their starting third baseman Pablo Sandoval is progressing towards a return.

Sandoval has been on the disabled list with a knee sprain since April 25, but he’s in St. Louis with the team and could begin a rehab assignment as early as Friday.

“Went through some early work today, ran the bases, we’ve got to get him … now that he’s back to baseball activity, we’ve got to get him back into game shape and that’s going to be required to get out on rehab,” manager John Farrell told reporters in St. Louis. “We’re hopeful that will begin when we leave here and go to the West Coast. He’d join Pawtucket and start getting some games under his belt.”weei.com

No real posts in this thread, and we have taken the first two games?
