Boston Red Sox Lineup: Jarren Duran Batting 2nd, Alex Verdugo Batting 6th; Eduardo Rodriguez Takes on Gerrit Cole

The Red Sox take on the Yankees Friday night, as Eduardo Rodriguez will take on Gerrit Cole in what looks like it’ll be a pitchers duel.

Here are the roster moves the Yankees made today:

They also optioned Brooks Kriske to Triple-A, after he threw four wild pitches and allowed the Red Sox to score twice in the 10th and walk it off.

The Red Sox also made a move, sending Hirokazu Sawamura to the 10-Day IL while Phillips Valdez was recalled from the WooSox.

Last time Cole faced the Red Sox, he tossed six one-run innings to lead the Yankees to victory last weekend. But the time before that, the Red Sox piled on six runs and eight hits through just five innings.

Jarren Duran will be making his first start at Fenway.
