In this episode of the Pre-Cap Show, Keaton and Shelly preview the latest series against the Phillies. In the Red Sox’s first matchup against the NL East, they took on the Phillies along with their best two pitchers, Aaron Nola and Zach Wheeler. The team held their own against Nola in the first matchup but struggled in the last game against Wheeler. Peréz looked okay in his six innings of work on Friday, and we are starting to feel comfortable with him as a back-end starter.
We also discuss the struggles Eovaldi and Rodriguez — the latter of whom picked up the loss on Sunday — are going through and if we believe these are long-term struggles.
After taking a look at the three games that just happened, we also take a quick glance at the two-game series against Atlanta. Keaton feels better about Richards and Shelly (strangely) feels more confident in Pivetta but this series should be a fun watch!
