Boston Red Sox - Looking to Improvise with New Additions this Season
Moving forward in the opening game of the official MLB season for them, Red Sox will be looking to add value to their squad and improve their overall gameplay. Red Sox finished last in the previous season and hasn’t been able to perform quite well in the last consecutive seasons. With the inclusion of Justin Turner, Adam Duvall, Corey Kluber, Masataka Yoshida, Chris Martin, and Kenley Jansen in the lineup, the Boston Red Sox will be looking to start the season on a high in front of their very own fans. Corey Kluber is likely to start the proceedings for Red Sox, making most of his craftmanship in play. In the last season, Kluber only threw 36 four-seam fastballs; hence, we can expect him to start pretty well for the home side.
