Red Sox vs. Braves lineups: The last go around

The last fake game of the year, as things start to return to normal.

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Atlanta Braves
And a happy #PérezDay to you.

The Red Sox and Braves meet for what feels like the 67th and final time this March when they square off at 1:05 p.m. in Fort Myers. NESN will have the broadcast for this final game of the spring.

Martín Pérez starts for a Boston squad that yesterday saw the all clear for the return of Matt Barnes and his close contacts after his COVID-positive test was deemed to be non-contagious (i.e., had mostly passed; there were many jokes about this that could have been alleviated with two seconds’s worth of thought or research, alas...). Christian Vázquez is still out, but otherwise the Sox are putting a very April-worthy lineup on the field. This is the second-to-last game of spring training, so there’s little left to say except 48 hours to go!
