Despite ugly performances from Steven Wright and Rick Porcello this week, the Boston Red Sox’s pitching staff already is off to a better start 10 games into the season compared to last year’s campaign.
Through 10 games in 2017, the Red Sox offensive numbers are down from a year ago, but their pitching has improved and is trending in the right direction.
The team currently has a 4.40 ERA compared to a 4.81 ERA through their first 10 games of 2016. The addition of Chris Sale certainly has helped the cause, and it should get even better when David Price returns.
