    Garrett Whitlock will make 1 more start before Red Sox debut; plus updates on Brayan Bello, James Paxton

    After striking out six batters in a four-inning rehab start Friday in Worcester, Red Sox righty Garrett Whitlock is likely just one outing away from joining Boston's major league rotation. Manager Alex Cora said Saturday that Whitlock (recovery from right hip surgery) will pitch again Thursday, this time at Double-A Portland on Opening Day for the SeaDogs. After that, as long as there are no setbacks, Whitlock will be activated to join the Red Sox. “Good stuff, good (velocity), late action,” Cora said.
