Boston Red Sox schedule today: May 17

Game:Time (EST):TV Info
vs Houston Astros7:10 PMTBS
  • Over/Under: 8.5 runs
  • Moneyline: Red Sox (-120)
  • Spread: Red Sox, -1.5
  • Sportsnaut prediction: Astros 6, Red Sox 3

We’ll start with the good news. The Red Sox lineup came alive in Texas, snapping a cold spell that plummeted this team down the MLB standings. Coming out of the series with a victory is a net win, but the 7-1 loss on Sunday to prevent a series sweep stings.

As for the Red Sox game today, they are favored against the Houston Astros. However, the Astros are one of the hottest teams in baseball and even more dangerous at home.

Boston Red Sox roster: 2022 Red Sox lineup, rotation

MLB: ALCS-Boston Red Sox at Houston Astros
Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Here is the projected everyday Boston Red Sox lineup and starting rotation, For the start of the 2022 season, teams are permitted to use 28-man rosters to break camp and it will carry over through April. After that, rosters will be reduced to the traditional 26-man roster.

Boston Red Sox lineup

  • 1. Enrique Hernandez – CF
  • 2. Trevor Story – 2B
  • 3. Rafael Devers – 3B
  • 4. Xander Bogaerts – SS
  • 5. J.D. Martinez – DH
  • 6. Alex Verdugo – LF
  • 7. Bobby Dalbec – 1B
  • 8. Christian Vazquez – C
  • 9. Jackie Bradley Jr – RF

The Red Sox lineup looks a lot better after signing Trevor Story to a six-year contract. He’ll fit perfectly at second base, creating one of the best 2-6 batting orders in baseball. Keep in mind, there’s also quite a bit of upside with Dalbec.

Boston Red Sox rotation

  • 1. Nathan Eovaldi
  • 2. Nick Pivetta
  • 3. Garrett Whitlock
  • 4. Michael Wacha
  • 5. Rich Hill
  • 6. Chris Sale* – INJURED LIST

While the Red Sox will likely use a five-man rotation, a shortened season and delayed spring training might force the team to use more pitchers early in the regular season. Tanner Houck and Connor Seabold will be candidates for fill-in starts.

Chris Sale is going to begin the season on the injured list due to a stress fracture in his ribs. As a result, Boston will likely either ramp up its efforts to land another starting pitcher or it could push Tanner Houck into the rotation.
