Outfielder Christian Yelich was activated from the 10-day disabled list by the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday after recovering from a strained right oblique, and right-handed reliever Jorge Lopez was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs of the Pacific Coast League.
Yelich was available off the bench Tuesday night, but didn’t see action in the Brewers’ 2-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds. Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Yelich probably will start in Wednesday’s series finale.
Getting Christian back is really important, Counsell said. Yesterday was a day when we probably had four guys out of the lineup that were in our planned lineup for the first day. But that’s a baseball season. It’s going to happen.
Just last year and how it all unfolded — obviously it was pretty different but pretty special, Wentz said. He and I — we’ve been so close ever since he first got here and just developed a real friendship, a real relationship, more than just a working relationship, a true friendship between me and him and really Nate [Sudfeld] as well. A really special room. So to go through that experience last year was pretty cool.
Boston (14-2) added to its best start in franchise history with its 14th win in the past 15 games, became the first team to start 14-2 since the San Francisco Giants in 2003, and ended a seven-game winning streak by the Angels (13-4), who are also off to their best start in club history.
He pitched seven scoreless innings Thursday night against the visiting New York Yankees, and Betts also hit two home runs in the game to lead the Red Sox to a 6-3 win. Porcello did not allow a hit until Aaron Judge led off the seventh with a double, and that came after a 45-minute rain delay.
Porcello is happy to get off to a good start after opening 1-4 last season en route to an 11-17 mark.
It feels good, Porcello told ESPN after beating the Yankees. I’m contributing to the team in a positive way. That’s the biggest thing. I’m three starts in. … a lot of baseball to be played, but definitely want to continue to build off this start.
Porcello has struggled in his career against Los Angeles, however.
