2022 Opening Day is here. The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees will face off at 1:05 p.m. ET at Yankee Stadium Friday afternoon as Nathan Eovaldi will get the start for the Sox while Trevor Story will bat sixth in his Red Sox debut.
Story will bat sixth against righties as manager Alex Cora said before the season, and Rafael Devers will hit second. Story will hit second against lefties; Devers — a left-handed hitter — and Story won’t swap though against southpaws, as Devers will just move down in the lineup instead of going to sixth.
Jackie Bradley Jr. will make his first start for the Sox since 2020, and the rest is the same for the Sox.
The two teams met in the Wild Card game last season and the Sox won before advancing to the ALCS and being two games away from a pennant.
Here is your Sox lineup and pitching probables for today’s affair.
