Jackie Bradley Jr. Gets Day Off Against Lefty David Price As Jonny Gomes, Daniel Nava Start


Jackie Bradley Jr.s hot spring training hasn’t carried over to the regular season yet, so the Red Sox are giving him another day off against lefty David Price on Saturday.

Daniel Nava‘s strong spring campaign has carried over, however, earning him his seventh start of the young season. Nava hit .327 during the spring with a .438 OBP. Through six games Nava is hitting .421 with a 1.467 OPS. He has three home runs and seven RBIs.

Jon Lester is another Red Sox off to a hot start. Through two starts he has a 1.50 ERA and two wins. He has 13 strikeouts in 12 innings.

The Rays lefty, Price, hasn’t been so fortunate. He has a 8.18 ERA in two starts and has struck out just seven in 11 innings.
