    Dave Dombrowski Answers Questions Surrounding Current State Of Red Sox

    The Boston Red Sox open a six-game homestand on Tuesday night against the Texas Rangers and the Seattle Mariners for Boston’s last homestand in the month of May.

One was the starting rotation, and another was a quartet of sluggers with big strikeout rates. In addition, a pair of hitters from the 2016 draft stood out because they made a lot of contact, and it’s those two who have risen to the top of both the stat sheet and the lineup.

The right-handed batter leads the team with a 126 wRC+, using an all-around profile — strong average and OBP, decent power, and a relatively low rate of strikeouts and
