Chris Sale will be making his first appearance of the season for the Red Sox, which will hopefully give the Red Sox a much-needed upgrade with their starting pitching. Tampa Bay will start Corey Kluber, who has allowed nine runs in his last 20.1 innings of work. Kluber started against Boston last week, allowing 0 runs and three hits over six innings of work in Boston. Tampa Bay really struggled over the weekend in Cincinnati, but bounced back with a nice win on Monday night. I don’t know what kind of performance we are going to get from Sale and I like the value that Tampa Bay has at home with Kluber pitching again. I am taking Tampa Bay.
