The Boston Red Sox are back home at Fenway Park to take on the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night at 7:10 p.m. ET.

The Red Sox will send Drew Pomeranz to the mound for his 2017 season debut after a rocky start to his career with the team after he came over in a trade with the San Diego Padres last season.

Former Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield said Pomeranz will need to establish his fastball so he can use his effective breaking ball to get hitters out.
