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.
DETROIT: 2017: 64-98, fifth place.
MANAGER: Ron Gardenhire (first season).
ADDITIONS: OF Leonys Martin, RHP Mike Fiers, LHP Francisco Liriano, OF Victor Reyes.
SUBTRACTIONS: Manager Brad Ausmus, 2B Ian Kinsler, RHP Anibal Sanchez, INF Andrew Romine, RHP Bruce Rondon.
OUTLOOK: The Tigers traded Verlander, Justin Upton and J.D. Martinez last season, then dealt away Kinsler during the offseason. There could be more big moves on the horizon ' Fulmer, Iglesias and Castellanos should all have some trade value, but each of them is young enough that he could be useful to the Tigers when they become competitive again. That's especially true of Fulmer, the 2016 AL Rookie of the Year. Barring a huge surprise in terms of on-field results, the biggest suspense this season might revolve around how general
MANAGER Al Avila approaches the next few steps in the rebuild.
PREVIEW
Red Sox's Sale to make first post-All-Star Game start vs. Tigers
 

Fresh off a third consecutive start in the All-Star Game, Chris Sale goes back to pitching in a pennant race.

The Boston Red Sox left-hander tossed one scoreless inning and nine pitches for the American League on Tuesday night. One of his fastballs was clocked at 100.7 mph, the fastest pitch he has thrown in eight years.

"The only thing I was thinking about out there was getting outs and not messing up," he said afterward.

He rarely messes up under any circumstances. He entered the All-Star Game on a hot streak and will make his initial second-half start against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.

Sale (10-4, 2.23 ERA) became just the third pitcher to start three consecutive All-Star Games.

"It was awesome," he told NESN. "Obviously, I know the history behind it, know that's only happened two other times. Just trying to soak it all in and appreciate it."

In Sale's last seven starts, he has been nearly unhittable. He's 5-1 with an 0.94 ERA and 78 strikeouts in 48 innings.

In 31 career outings against Detroit, Sale is 9-8 with a 3.05 ERA.

Two active Tigers have had surprising success through the years against him. Designated hitter Victor Martinez has batted .423 with four homers in 52 official at-bats and shortstop Jose Iglesias has a .344 average in 32 at-bats.

Sale was originally scheduled to face Detroit ace Michael Fulmer but was placed on the disabled list this weekend with an oblique strain. He was injured during a bullpen session on Friday.

"It's not like I went out there cold and didn't warm up properly, or this or that," Fulmer told MLB.com. "I did everything I would usually do for my normal routine. It didn't feel tight. It was just one of those things where it just happened."

The Tigers will instead counter with left-hander Blaine Hardy (3-2, 3.31 ERA).

Hardy will be making his ninth start and 19th appearance this season. His most recent start came June 26 when he gave up six runs (three earned) in four innings against Oakland.

He has made five relief appearances since then, giving up just one run in 6 2/3 innings.

"I am curious on what kind of pitch count they're going to give me," Hardy told the Detroit News. "Or more so, what pitch count can I get to."

Hardy has faced Boston three times, including one start, posting a 1-2 record and 7.04 ERA.

The Red Sox activated third baseman Rafael Devers from the disabled list on Saturday. Devers went 1-for-4 in his return but also committed his 20th error, which led to Detroit's first two runs in a 5-0 victory.

Boston is fortunate to have split the first two games of the three-game set despite scoring just one run. The Red Sox were blanked for the fourth time on Saturday when they stranded 10 baserunners in a 5-0 loss.

Utility man Brock Holt was unavailable Saturday after suffering a right knee contusion on Friday. He won't play Sunday but shouldn't be out long.

"He's doing OK. Just a little bit sore," Red Sox manager Alex Cora said during his pregame press conference. "Trying to stay away from him today and tomorrow. Hopefully, he can start on Monday."
