Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox take on the Minnesota Twins Friday afternoon at 2:10 p.m. ET in the home opener as Nick Pivetta takes the mound while Xander Bogaerts returns to the lineup.

Bogaerts didn’t get the chance to face Eduardo Rodriguez in the series finale due to general soreness, but he’ll return to the lineup today. The Sox are going back to the default lineup against righties with everyone back and healthy.
