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 poised to sweep Angels
 

The highly anticipated three-game series between the two hottest teams in the American League has turned into a one-sided affair.

The Boston Red Sox head into the series finale against the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night with a chance to sweep after two impressive wins at Angel Stadium. Boston hasn't swept Los Angeles since winning a four-game series at Angel Stadium from April 21-24, 2011.

The Red Sox (15-2) have outscored the Angels 19-1 through the first two games, powering nine home runs.

"Those guys, if you miss some spots, they're going to swing the bats," Angels manager Mike Scioscia told reporters Wednesday night. "We can too, but we haven't really pressured those guys the way we need to on the offensive side."

The two starters for Boston, David Price and Rick Porcello, came in with losing records against the Angels in their decorated careers, but neither had problems mowing through the batting order, and neither has the Boston bullpen.

Seven Red Sox pitchers have combined to strike out 18 batters in the series.

Boston left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez (1-0, 3.72 ERA) will take his turn in his third start of the season on Thursday. He'll not only try to follow up Price and Porcello, but his last performance as well.

Rodriguez allowed one run and five hits in six innings against the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night, using a steady stream of fastballs to strike out eight and walk two in the 7-3 victory.

"Elevated fastball, that should be a weapon for him," Rod Sox manager Alex Cora told reporters after the game. "He keeps learning, but you can see the stuff is there. He's electric."

Rodriguez has faced the Angels once and produced the worst numbers of his four-year career in that outing at Angel Stadium on July 20, 2015.

Then a rookie, Rodriguez was up against a red-hot Los Angeles team that had won 13 of its past 16 games, and he allowed seven runs and six hits in 1 1/3 innings of the 11-1 loss. He gave up all seven runs in a span of eight pitches.

Kole Calhoun and Albert Pujols each went 1-for-2 with a home run off Rodriguez.

Scioscia said he doesn't expect the offensive slump to last long.

"We're a much better offensive team than any time in the last number of years, so we have a lot of confidence we'll continue to swing the bats well," Scioscia said.

The Angels will send right-hander Nick Tropeano (1-0, 0.00) to the mound in his second regular-season outing since undergoing Tommy John surgery in August 2016. Tropeano shut out the Kansas City Royals for 6 2/3 innings April 12 in a 7-1 victory. He allowed six hits, struck out six and walked two.

"Our bullpen's been used a lot and we have to get a little bit of length from our starters," Scioscia said.

Tropeano is a native New Yorker who went to West Islip High School and Stony Brook College on Long Island. He has never faced the Red Sox in 26 major league appearances (25 starts).

Boston first baseman Mitch Moreland faced Tropeano seven times as a member of the Texas Rangers and is 1-for-7 with a home run. The only other current Red Sox player to bat off Tropeano at the major league level is second baseman Eduardo Nunez, who is 0-for-4.
