The Red Sox came back from a day off to grab a win on Friday, taking down the Rays by a score of 11-7. They were losing for most of this one after a rough outing from their starter, but some of the organization top prospects had big swings late to give Boston the lead, and eventually the win https://www.crfanstore.com/58-joe_morgan_jersey. Here are the day notes:Nathan Eovaldi has had better daysThe Red Sox season is going to in large part be determined by the health and performance of their rotation. On the health front, so far so good. The performance we not judging too much at this point Bret Boone Jersey, but to the extent we are it been a bit of a mixed bag. On Friday, it was Nathan Eovaldi taking the mound for Boston, and he was on the more negative side of that bag.The righty once again had his velocity going, but also showed that velocity simply is not everything. Even hard fastballs can be hit even harder. And sure enough, in the top half of the first, Eovaldi left a pitch right over the heart of the plate and Mike Zunino was all over it, sending it way out to straightaway center for a solo homer. In the second, the Rays managed back-to-back triples off the Red Sox righty, and followed that up with two singles, a double and a walk before Eovaldi managed to get out of the inning. To his credit, he did settle down some after that, allowing just a single over the next two innings to finish his day. In all, he allowed the four runs on eight hits , a walk and five strikeouts.As we said, the real key for Eovaldi is certainly to make it through the spring healthy. Generally speaking, he been solid when healthy since joining the Red Sox, even if he may not pitch entirely to the contract. Still, it been known for his whole career that he can get by on velocity alone, and he been hit around at times this spring https://www.crfanstore.com/334-kyle_farmer_jersey. Overall, he has now allowed 11 runs over 9 13 innings on 17 hits, two walks and 10 strikeouts. The control of the zone is good, but it sure would be nice to see him get a clean outing or two in before the games start counting.Hunter Renfroe and Jarren Duran lead the offenseThe outfield has some questions itself heading into the season, and the two stars in the lineup today could help that. We start with the guy who will be there righty away in Hunter Renfroe. He showed off his power once again in this one, taking a hanging breaking ball and smashing it way out to center field off the batter eye, which is a long way away. That was his second homer of the spring Jesse Winker Jersey, and he up to a .754 OPS. It been a mixed bag all spring for him, as he shown the good and the bad. The Red Sox will be hoping for more of the former as Renfroe figures to play nearly everyday, at least early in the season, swapping between right and center field. In this game he started in right and went 1-3 with a strikeout added in as well.Kim Klement-USA TODAY SportsMeanwhile, it was Duran getting the start in center. One of the best prospects in the system, he had been getting a lot of starts early in spring and was showing out, but has seen more time late in games with Alex Verdugo getting more involved. Duran didn waste his chance back in the starting lineup here. He didn have a home run, but he came as close as you can get, smashing one out to center field that hit the very top of the wall and bounced back in play. He had to settle for an RBI double https://www.crfanstore.com/146-jesse_winker_jersey. Duran also had a three base hits in this one, going 4-5 on the day with a run and three RBI. He up to a 1.236 OPS, and the timeline for him is going to be one of the most fascinating stories to watch this spring.Garrett Whitlock continues a hot springGarrett Whitlock continues to be one of the bright points of the spring. The Rule 5 selection has certainly looked the part of a guy who is going to stick around all year, and Friday was perhaps his best outing yet. He came out for the sixth inning on Friday, easily cruising through his first frame in order with a pair of strikeouts. He come back out for the seventh, and pick right back up, this time striking out all three batters he faced. The Red Sox would then push him back out for a third inning of work, his longest outing of the year. He finally giving up his first hit of the outing on a one-out single, but came back with two more outs.In all, he retired nine of the 10 batters he faced with five strikeouts to go with that. With this outing, he now up to nine innings this spring with one run on eight hits, no walks and 12 strikeouts.
