HOUSTON: He's Here: RHP Jake Odorizzi, C Jason Castro, RHP Pedro B'ez, RHP Ryne Stanek, RHP Steve Cishek, OF Steven Souza Jr.
He's Outta Here: CF George Springer, OF Josh Reddick, RHP Roberto Osuna, RHP Chris Devenski, RHP Brad Peacock, LHP Cionel Perez, RHP Cy Sneed.
Projected Lineup: 2B Jose Altuve (.219, 5 HRs, 18 RBIs), LF Michael Brantley (.300, 5, 22, 15 2Bs), SS Carlos Correa (.264, 5, 25), 3B Alex Bregman (.242, 6, 22), DH Yordan 'lvarez (.250, 1, 4 in 2 games), RF Kyle Tucker (.268, 9, 42, 6 3Bs), 1B Yuli Gurriel (.232, 6, 22, 12 2Bs), CF Myles Straw (.207, 0, 8), C Mart'n Maldonado (.215, 6, 24).
Rotation: RH Zack Greinke (3-3, 4.03 ERA), RH Lance McCullers Jr. (3-3, 3.93), RH Jake Odorizzi (0-1, 6.59 in 4 starts for Twins), RH Cristian Javier (5-2, 3.48), RH Jose Urquidy (1-1, 2.73 in 5 starts).
Key Relievers: RH Ryan Pressly (1-3, 3.43, 12 saves), RH Steve Cishek (0-0, 5.40 for White Sox), RH Joe Smith (opted out of 2020 season), RH Pedro B'ez (0-0, 3.18 for Dodgers), RH Josh James (1-0, 7.27).
Outlook: The Astros seek their fourth AL West title in five seasons after keeping last year's team that came a win shy of the World Series largely intact. They relied on a bevy of talented young pitchers to carry them in a season when ace Justin Verlander made just one start. One of those starters, Framber Valdez, broke a finger on his pitching hand in spring training and could miss significant time. That leaves McCullers, Urquidy and Javier needing to take another step forward this season with Verlander out all year after undergoing Tommy John surgery. The rotation got a late boost when Houston added Odorizzi. The 2019 All-Star gives the Astros a veteran to pair with the 37-year-old Greinke and provide stability as some of the young arms develop. They'll have a huge hole in the lineup after leadoff hitter and center fielder Springer signed a $150 million, six-year contract with the Blue Jays after spending his first seven major league seasons in Houston. The Astros brought back veteran outfielder Brantley, who signed a two-year deal to stay with the team, and their offense should get a boost with the return of Alvarez. The 2019 AL Rookie of the Year is healthy after missing all but two games last season after being diagnosed with COVID-19 before having knee surgery. His return should help make up for the loss of Springer in a lineup that also features Bregman, Altuve and Correa, who powered the offense in the playoffs with six homers and 17 RBIs. The Astros announced in January that they would allow about 10,000 fans per game at Minute Maid Park early this season. But they could increase that number before opening day in the wake of the Texas Rangers' decision to allow 100% capacity at their ballpark after Gov. Greg Abbott lifted coronavirus restrictions in the state.
BOSTON: He's Here: Manager Alex Cora, 2B Enrique Hern'ndez, RHP Garrett Richards, LF Hunter Renfroe, RHP Adam Ottavino, OF Franchy Cordero, RHP Matt Andriese, RHP Garrett Whitlock, RHP Josh Winckowski, 3B Marwin Gonz'lez, RHP Hirokazo Sawamura.
He's Outta Here: Manager Ron Roenicke, 2B Dustin Pedroia, OF Andrew Benintendi, CF Jackie Bradley Jr., SS C.J. Chatham, C Devy Grullon, LHP Yoan Aybar, RHP Robert Stock, LHP Matt Hall, RHP Ryan Weber, RHP Collin McHugh, RHP Domingo Tapia.
Projected Lineup: 2B Enrique Hern'ndez (.230, 5 HRs, 20 RBIs), CF Alex Verdugo (.308, 6, 15), DH J.D. Martinez (.213, 7, 27), SS Xander Bogaerts (.300, 11, 28), 3B Rafael Devers (.263, 11, 43), RF Hunter Renfroe (.156, 8, 22), LF Marwin Gonz'lez (.211, 5, 37), C Christian V'zquez (.283, 7, 23), 1B Bobby Dalbec (.263, 8, 16).
Rotation: LH Eduardo Rodr'guez (19-6, 3.81 ERA in 2019; did not pitch in 2020 due to COVID-19), RH Nathan Eovaldi (4-2, 3.72), LH Mart'n P'rez (3-5, 4.50), RH Garrett Richards (2-2, 4.03), RH Nick Pivetta (2-0, 6.89), LH Chris Sale (6-11, 4.40 in 2019; expected back from Tommy John surgery midseason).
Key Relievers: RH Matt Barnes (1-3, 4.30, 5 saves), RH Hirokazu Sawamura (1-4, 3.05 for Chiba Lotte and Yomiuri in Japan), RH Adam Ottavino (2-3, 5.89), RH Matt Andriese (2-4, 4.50), RH Ryan Brasier (1-0, 3.96), LH Darwinzon Hern'ndez (1-0, 2.16).
Outlook: After winning the 2018 World Series, the team's fourth championship in 15 seasons, the Red Sox fired Cora in the wake of the Houston sign-stealing scandal last offseason and traded 2018 AL MVP Mookie Betts and 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner David Price to the Dodgers in a salary dump. The Red Sox were also without Sale, who missed the entire 2020 season recovering from Tommy John surgery, and Rodr'guez, who was out with heart inflammation caused by COVID-19. Roenicke, promoted from bench coach after players started reporting to spring training, didn't have much of a chance. So the Red Sox moved on and brought back Cora, who served his one-year suspension for his role in the Astros scandal. The team's best hope of getting out of the cellar of the stacked AL East in 2021 is that he relights a spark in Martinez and Devers, who both struggled during the pandemic-shortened season; Rodriguez returns strong and Sale is able to recover by midseason. The retirement of Dustin Pedroia, who played only nine games in the past three years, provides clarity at second base and opened a spot that Hern'ndez should fill. Bogaerts is signed to a long-term deal and could become the star future teams are built around. Or, he could become the next Betts. Verdugo, the biggest acquisition in the Dodgers deal, is also a piece for the future. Fenway Park will be open to fans, beginning at 12% capacity, or around 4,500 people.
