The Boston Red Sox continue their 11-game west coast trip in Seattle on Monday. The Sox earned a split in their four-game set against the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.
- The Mariners are 3-9 in Paxton’s last 12 starts.
- The UNDER is 5-0 in Boston’s last 5 games.
- The OVER is 4-1 in Seattle’s last 5 games.
Eduardo Rodriguez and James Paxton are the hurlers that are scheduled to get the nod. Rodriguez (2-4, 6.51 ERA), who has never faced Seattle, is 2-1 in four road starts this season despite posting an ugly 7.08 ERA.
Paxton (3-5, 4.27) has given up a total of 15 runs of 15 2/3 innings in his last three home starts, going 1-1 in that stretch. Paxton was fantastic in his only career start against the Red Sox, scattering five hits over eight scoreless innings in a May 17, 2015 victory.
Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel, who underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee three weeks ago, could be activated on Monday.
