Prior to Tuesday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, Boston Red Sox manager Ron Roenicke said Mitch Moreland was physically “ready to go.”
The first baseman confirmed this in his first at-bat, blasting a solo shot to right field in the second inning and giving the Red Sox a 1-0 lead. Hunter Renfroe attempted to rob him, but the ball was just out of reach.
