Since Wednesday was an off day, Nathan Eovaldi has had some extra time to prepare for a start that will hopefully turn his early struggles around. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe)

Matt Barnes doesn’t believe in labels. He’s fine pitching whenever he is needed. (Nick Friar; WEEI)

As good as Barnes has been, if the starters don’t figure things out, he and the rest of the relievers will be asked to do too much. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal) ($$)

Clay Buchholz has some ideas about what Chris Sale can fix. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

Obviously its not just Sale who has to improve. (Eno Sarris; The Athletic) ($$)

Ian Browne provides some specific examples. (Ian Browne; MLB.com)
