First chance to take the series against the Red Sox. Let's hope we can do it with the more favourable pitching matchup tonight and take some pressure off the Chris Sale game tomorrow.
The only bit of news today was that Troy Tulowitzki has been cleared to resume baseball activities. There is still no timeline for his return.
Here are our lineups for tonight. Grichuk sits again, and Travis gets a day off. Teoscar Hernandez switches to right field and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. will make his Rogers Center debut.
