KEY GAME INFORMATION
BOSTON: 2017: 93-69, first place, lost to Houston in ALDS.
MANAGER: Alex Cora (first season).
ADDITIONS: DH J.D. Martinez.
SUBTRACTIONS:
MANAGER John Farrell, RHP Doug Fister, OF Chris Young, RHP Addison Reed, OF Rajai Davis, LHP Henry Owens, LHP Fernando Abad.
OUTLOOK: The Red Sox won 93 games last year for the second straight season and claimed the franchise's first back-to-back AL East titles. But Farrell was fired after they failed to advance in the playoffs for the fourth year in a row. The key ' and really only ' addition is Martinez, who gives them someone to replace longtime slugger David Ortiz after finishing last in the AL in homers without Big Papi in 2017. The theory behind Boston keeping up with the reloaded New York Yankees goes something like this: A full season of a healthy Price will bolster a rotation that already has a quality ace in Sale, plus 2016 AL Cy Young Award winner Porcello and All-Stars Pomeranz and Wright. The Red Sox also are staking their chances on the hope that Ramirez can be more like the player he was in 2016 (.286, 30, 111); that Pedroia will return quickly and be healthy and productive; that 20-year-old third baseman Devers will be able to stay up for a full season; and that Bradley won't have another second-half slump. The bullpen, anchored by Kimbrel, remains strong.
LA ANGELS: 2017: 80-82, second place.
MANAGER: Mike Scioscia (19th season).
ADDITIONS: RHP-DH Shohei Ohtani, RHP Jim Johnson, 3B Zack Cozart, 2B Ian Kinsler, C Rene Rivera, OF Chris Young.
SUBTRACTIONS: 3B Yunel Escobar, 1B C.J. Cron, 2B Brandon Phillips, RHP Ricky Nolasco, RHP Jesse Chavez, RHP Yusmeiro Petit.
OUTLOOK: The Angels made several apparently savvy offseason moves and are in position to end the big-budget franchise's eight-year stretch without a playoff victory. They've assembled veterans Upton, Kinsler and Cozart around Trout and Pujols to create a potentially dangerous lineup, and they should be one of baseball's best defensive teams with Gold Glove winners Simmons and Maldonado leading the way. The rotation is fairly deep if not spectacular, and the bullpen has a chance to be good. Yet the most compelling aspect of these Angels is Ohtani, who chose Orange County for his dramatic move stateside as he attempts to become the majors' first significant two-way player in decades. Early returns from spring training aren't promising, but the Angels are committed to investing the playing time and patience required for Ohtani's rare talent to shine.
PREVIEW
Red Sox-Angels Preview
 

The two teams with the best records in the American League will open a three-game series on Tuesday when the Los Angeles Angels host the Boston Red Sox at Angel Stadium.

The Angels (13-3) have won seven straight for the first time since Sept. 22-29, 2015, and are off to their best 16-game start in franchise history.

The Red Sox (13-2) have won 13 of their past 14 for the best start in their 118-year history.

Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale told MLB.com after pitching five innings in a 13-2 victory against the visiting Baltimore Orioles on Sunday that the atmosphere in the clubhouse is enjoyable.

"You can't beat it," he said. "It's coming in, having fun, expecting to win every single day, coming into the clubhouse after the game and the music is playing. You can't beat that. That's what we're looking for. We're going to stay on it and keep doing what we've got to do to maintain that."

The series opener added even more appeal when the series finale between the Angels and Kansas City Royals was postponed on Sunday because of freezing temperatures in Kansas City. Japanese rookie sensation Shohei Ohtani (2-0, 2.08 ERA) was scheduled to start on the mound on Sunday, but instead will face off against Boston left-hander David Price (1-1, 2.40) on Tuesday.

Ohtani, who also serves as a part-time designated hitter, took a perfect game into the seventh inning in his last start April 8 against the visiting Oakland A's. He exited after allowing one hit and one walk in the seventh inning. He finished with 12 strikeouts in the 6-1 victory.

"That's as good a game as you could ever see pitched," Angels manager Mike Scioscia told reporters after the game.

The Angels sold 44,742 tickets for Ohtani's last start on the mound, the most for any regular-season day game since Angel Stadium was downsized 20 years ago.

The Angels currently lead the majors in several offensive categories, including batting average (.291), home runs (26) and OPS (.825).

They'll be up against a starting pitching staff for the Red Sox that's a combined 9-1 with the best ERA in the majors at 2.06.

Price, the 2012 AL Cy Young winner and two-time AL ERA leader, hasn't had as much success against the Angels as he's had against other teams, particularly at Angel Stadium'

He's 5-7 in his career against Los Angeles with a 3.53 ERA. Of the 16 major league teams Price has made at least five starts against, only the Angels and Texas Rangers (5-4) have a winning record against him. Price is 4-5 in 10 career starts at Angel Stadium with a 3.67 ERA.

Price left his last start after one inning on Wednesday because of numbness in his pitching hand. He had allowed four runs and three hits to the New York Yankees, who eventually won 10-7, Boston's only loss since Opening Day.

"I told (manager Alex Cora) I was fine for Monday, or I could come back on Saturday or Sunday, go sit in the pen if needed," Price told WEEI on Friday. "I told him I'd go out there any one. He thought Tuesday would be better weather-wise."

The Red Sox were scheduled to host the Orioles on Monday at Fenway Park, but the game was postponed on Sunday because extended periods of sustained rain were forecasted throughout the day and into the evening.
