Today, we get to see the debut of Hector Velazquez, a player we signed over the long, arduous winter. We don’t know a whole lot about him, other than that he’s a righty, and that he pitched well in Mexico, especially last year. He takes on a Rays lineup that seems light, even for a spring training game against the Rays.

The Red Sox, on the other hand, bring out a bevvy of major league talent, or at least depth that could make an impact on the major league team.

  1. Brock Holt, SS
  2. Andrew Benintendi, LF
  3. Allen Craig, DH
  4. Jackie Bradley Jr, CF
  5. Sam Travis, 1B
  6. Blake Swihart, C
  7. Bryce Brentz, RF
  8. Marco Hernandez, 2B
  9. Chris Dominguez, 3B

Starting Pitcher - Hector Velazquez

Game starts at 1:05 PM ET, and can be watched on NESN, supposedly! Spring Training ball.

EDIT - 5:12 PM PT - A previous version of this article claimed Velazquez was a lefty, which was not correct. This has been fixed. Woops!
