The Pink Sox start a three-game collection towards the second-place Rays on Friday night time.
On the mound might be right-hander Rick Porcello, who’s coming off a less-than-stellar begin towards the Yankees wherein he allowed 5 runs on 9 hits in Four 2/Three innings. Sandy León will name the sport behind the plate.
J.D. Martinez is changed by Eduardo Nuñez on the designated hitter spot after exiting Thursday’s game with back spasms. Struggling rookie Michael Chavis will get a break day as nicely, with Mitch Moreland being activated from the injured list and beginning at first base.
