The Red Sox begin playing games this weekend. After their annual game against Northeastern on Friday, they’ll take the field for their first real spring training game on Saturday afternoon. With games comes the need for a pitching rotation, which manager Alex Cora shared in part on Tuesday.
Right now, the rotation starts with a question mark, as Saturday starter against the Braves still remains to be determined. Righty Josh Winckowski will then get the start on Sunday, followed by Kutter Crawford on Monday. On Tuesday, Corey Kluber – who was one of the biggest offseason additions for the Sox – will make his first start in a Red Sox uniform.
