2,098

The Boston Red Sox will begin a three-game series with the Texas Rangers on Friday night, and their first test is a difficult one against star pitcher Yu Darvish.

The Rangers ace uses four pitches effectively, including a four-seam fastball that often reaches 95 mph. Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski, who was Darvish’s teammate in Texas last season, knows exactly what Boston is up against Friday.

Check out the video above to watch Pierzynski give a scouting report on Darvish.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
