5/31/2018 @ HOUSTON  
6/1/2018 @ HOUSTON  
ATLANTA: 2017 72-90, third place
MANAGER Brian Snitker (third season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Brandon McCarthy, RHP Anibal Sanchez, LHP Scott Kazmir, INF Charlie Culberson, OF Preston Tucker, OF Ronald Acuna, 3B Austin Riley, OF Jeff Decker, 2B Christian Colon, RHP Shane Carle
SUBTRACTIONS: OF Matt Kemp, RHP R.A. Dickey, 3B Adonis Garcia, 1B Matt Adams, INF Jace Peterson, RHP Jason Motte
OUTLOOK: Teheran, Foltynewicz and Newcomb have provided reasons this spring to believe they can improve their 2017 numbers. For a change, the spring spotlight was on a position player; Acuna was hitting .432 with 4 home runs, 11 RBI and 4 steals when he was sent to minor league camp. The move involving the 20-year-old top prospect was expected. It was made to maintain an extra full season of contractual control down the road, but Acuna likely will be recalled in April and immediately start in left field. He could provide a needed power bat to help Freeman in the middle of the lineup. The Braves likely are still at least a year away from contending in the NL East, but improved starting pitching could push them closer to .500 this year.
BOSTON: 2017: 93-69, first place, lost to Houston in ALDS.
MANAGER: Alex Cora (first season).
ADDITIONS: DH J.D. Martinez.
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.
Braves make rotation change for series opener vs. Red Sox

BOSTON -- Massachusetts native Sean Newcomb was in line to make a homecoming start for the Atlanta Braves at Fenway Park on Friday night.

Instead, he will wait until Saturday as manager Brian Snitker has moved Julio Teheran into the Friday start against the Boston Red Sox and he did it for good reason.

Newcomb, a rookie, has thrived when given an extra days' rest.

In fact, he is 4-0 with a 1.91 ERA while making seven of his previous nine starts with an extra day off.

"The extra days have been good for him," Snitker said when making the change.

So, it's Teheran, who hopes to reverse his recent struggles when he goes against lefty Eduardo Rodriguez in the opener of the three-game inter-league series between two franchises that used to call Boston home.

And this weekend matchup is between the two Eastern Division leaders, the surprising Braves a half-game up on the Philadelphia Phillies and the Red Sox a game ahead of the New York Yankees after a 6-3 loss at Tampa Bay Thursday night.

The Red Sox failing to finish off a sweep of the three-game series, but this weekend they get sparkplug Dustin Pedroia back in the lineup after he has finally made his return from left knee surgery. Manager Alex Cora said Pedroia, who played in rehab games both Wednesday and Thursday, would make his first start either Friday or Saturday.

Teheran started the month of May hot, with a pair of scoreless appearances. But in his last two starts, the right-hander has allowed 10 runs as his ERA ballooned from 3.14 to 4.17.

He gave up six runs in five innings his last time out but still comes into this game 4-1 on the season.

He has not been great in two career outings against the Red Sox, one of them at Fenway, going 0-2 with a 4.73 ERA and yielding 19 hits in 13 1/3 innings. His ERA at Fenway is 8.53.

Rodriguez, also 4-1, has spun scoreless outings two of his last three times out, yielding only three runs and striking out 19 in 15 2/3 innings. His pitch count remains a problem, limiting his innings, but he has been effective.

The Red Sox, 17-14 since starting the season 17-2, were sloppy and starter Rick Porcello was ineffective in Thursday night's loss in St. Petersburg.

Porcello started the season 5-0 with a 2.14 ERA in seven starts but has gone 1-2 with a 7.29 over his last four.

"It's baseball. That's pitching," Porcello said. "You're going to have ebbs and flows over the course of the season, and you've got to make the necessary adjustments and get back on track."

The Braves just dropped two of their three games against the equally surprising Phillies in Philadelphia. Atlanta scored three times against the Phillies and were shut out twice.

The current Red Sox are a collective 14-for-40 (.350) with two homers against Teheran. Mookie Betts is 4-for-8 (.500), Brock Holt 3-for-6 (.500) with a homer and Xander Bogaerts 3-for-7 (.429).

Cora is ready to manage his first game with Pedroia on the active roster. Cora was with the Red Sox when Pedroia came to the major leagues in 2006.

"We know how passionate he is, the quality of at-bats he will give us and defensively, what he brings," said Cora. "When healthy, he's one of the best second basemen in the big leagues. I'm looking forward to having him in the lineup. I think his energy is going to help not only on the field but off the field with his leadership.

"And everybody knows about our relationship, so I know people are going to bring it up. It's a day I've been looking forward to, and to have him active and ready to contribute is going to be fun to see."
