Trades The Boston Red Sox Could Make Before The MLB Trade Deadline

MLB Odds: Red Sox Favored Heading Into Weekend Series Against Royals

Rick Porcello got the start on the hill for the Red Sox and got in a hole early on after giving up a solo home run in the second inning to Royals' catcher, Salvador Perez. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 9 runs.

Boston Red Sox left-handed pitcher David Price, sidelined for the first two months of the season, was placed on Major League Baseball's 10-day disabled list Friday with an inflamed left elbow. As he makes his return, Chris Young will fall to the Boston bench as Benintendi faces righty Trevor Cahill. He has a 3.69 ERA and 1.34 WHIP. Eduardo Rodriguez will be the starting pitcher for Boston. The Sox fell 4-2 to the Royals. Mike Moustakas hit his 30 home run of the season in the win while driving in three runs.

Moustakas, who competed in the 2017 Home Run Derby during the All-Star is now only six home runs away from the leader in single season home runs for the Royals (Steve Balboni).

Price had a run of seven straight starts allowing three or fewer earned runs come to an end at the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday, when he was lit up for six runs - five earned - on seven hits and three walks in five innings.

Bet on Royals vs. Making the jump to the American League can be challenging, especially against a team like Boston.

With the way things seem right now, today's game to me feels like it's going to be a low scoring affair, with whoever scores first wins.
