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.
TAMPA BAY: 017: 80-82, third place.
MANAGER: Kevin Cash (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: OF Denard Span, 1B C.J. Cron, RHP Nathan Eovaldi, OF Jake Bauers.
SUBTRACTIONS: 3B Evan Longoria, RHP Alex Cobb, RHP Jake Odorizzi, OF-DH Corey Dickerson, OF Steven Souza Jr., 1B Logan Morrison, 1B-DH Lucas Duda, RHP Brad Boxberger, RHP Steve Cishek, RHP Tommy Hunter, OF Peter Bourjos, INF Trever Plouffe, RHP Chase Whitley.
OUTLOOK: The Rays sport a new look after a winter of trimming payroll. In addition to the departures of Cobb and Odorizzi, the heart of a batting order that hit a club-record 228 homers ' Longoria, Dickerson, Souza and Morrison ' is gone, too. Archer, a two-time All-Star, is set to make his franchise-record fourth opening day start, and Colome is back at closer, too. The question that remains unanswered is, for how long? Cash and general manager Erik Neander aren't making any bold predictions but they insist that despite all the changes, the Rays have a chance to be a lot more competitive than it appears on paper.
PREVIEW
Rays will try to slow down Red Sox's power
 

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Rays get back to having a traditional starting pitcher on the mound, but they'll do so Tuesday night against the best hitting lineup in the majors as the Boston Red Sox come to town.

Boston (32-15) went into Monday night's games just percentage points behind the Yankees for the American League East lead, with the best team batting average (.270) and the most home runs (68) in all of baseball.

Red Sox sluggers Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez are tied for the major league lead with 15 home runs each, becoming the first pair of Boston players ever to both get to 15 home runs in the first 50 games of the season.

"The two guys I thought were at that pace, they never did it: Manny and David," said Red Sox manager Alex Cora, referring to Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz. "It's fun to watch."

The Rays are surprisingly within a game of .500 at 22-23, and they've done so despite enough injuries to their starting rotation that they've tried all kinds of innovations to traditional pitching approaches. Reliever Sergio Romo started each of the last two games -- this after 588 relief appearances to open his career -- and pitched well, getting three outs Saturday and four on Sunday without allowing a run or a hit.

What was expected to be a grueling 11-game, 10-day road trip turned out to be a 7-4 swing for the Rays, who won six straight before Sunday's loss to the Angels.

"We have to carry the momentum a little bit," manager Kevin Cash said. "The off day comes (Monday), hopefully that doesn't slow us down. Get excited, get back to the Trop. We've played tight ballgames against Boston. We have to find how to win those tight ballgames."

Boston is 7-3 against Tampa Bay this season, and six of those seven wins have come by a single run. The two teams won't play again after this series until August, when they wrap up the season series with three games at Fenway and three at Tropicana Field.

On Tuesday, the Rays will have to contend with Red Sox ace Chris Sale (4-1, 2.29 ERA), who pitched a hard-luck gem against Tampa Bay on opening day, allowing one hit in six scoreless innings of what ended up a 6-4 Rays victory.

Sale has dominated the Rays in recent years -- for his career, he's just 8-5 with a 3.10 ERA, but last year he was 4-1 with a 2.66 and in 2016, he was 2-0 with a 1.69, putting him at 6-1 with a 2.15 ERA since the start of 2016. He's averaging right around 1.5 strikeouts per inning in his career, with 152 strikeouts in 101 2/3 innings against Tampa Bay.

The Rays are back to a traditional starter they can expect to make it out of the second inning, though Jake Faria (3-2, 5.20) wasn't able to do that the last time he faced the Red Sox. In April, he lasted just 1 2/3 innings, giving up eight earned runs on five hits and five walks, so his season ERA against Boston is still 14.29; for his career, it's 6.14.

His last outing, Faria lasted only 4 1/3 innings, giving up three runs on four hits with four walks, so control remains a focal point as he tries to get back to the dominant pitching he opened his major league career with last season.
