New, 12 comments

Today is Nathan Eovaldi’s day

MLB: Spring Training-Minnesota Twins at Boston Red Sox Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Red Sox have watched their spring training losing streak jump up to six after a loss on Tuesday, and they’ll be back out there on Wednesday looking to snap it. This time, against the Twins, they have another one of their rotation members making his season debut in Nathan Eovaldi. The World Series hero will likely be out there for a three-inning stint based on what the other starters have done. On the position player side, it’s another day with mostly regulars, including Blake Swihart behind the plate. Andrew Benintendi, Rafael Devers and Dustin Pedroia have the day off.

For the second straight day there will be no television broadcast options for Red Sox fans. NESN doesn’t have the game locally, neither ESPN nor MLB Network has it nationally and there is no broadcast in Minnesota that can be seen on MLB.TV. If you do want to follow this game with more than just Gameday, you can turn to the radio broadcast. 850 AM WEEI will have this one. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 PM ET.

Update: Looks like J.D. will be sitting this one out.
