Red Sox affiliates
7:05 p.m.
Pawtucket Red Sox – Rubby De La Rosa (0-1, 3.29 ERA)
at Columbus Clippers – N/A
NOTE: After wearing a ‘B’ instead of a ‘P’ on his hat, Rubby De La Rosa returns to the PawSox after not being needed quite yet by the big club. His quick callup to Boston looks like an ‘in case of emergency’ situation, but now he can get back to his normal routine. De La Rosa was finally stretched out to five innings in his last start versus Syracuse back on the 8th, so now it’s just a matter of how much further the organization will let up on the leash. Considering he’s give up just four runs over his last eight starts, a little more slack wouldn't hurt.

Lowell Spinners – Sergio Gomez (0-1, 6.75 ERA)
at Connecticut Tigers – Alex Phillips (0-0, 18.00 ERA)
NOTE: Sergio Gomez has the honors of opening the season on the hill for Lowell. He did get a bit of a jump on his year last Tuesday when he pitched four innings in a start for the Greenville Drive. Gomez did make a start for the Spinners last season, striking out four in five innings. Much like Gomez, Connecticut starter Alex Phillips also got some work in last Tuesday, throwing two relief innings for West Michigan. Phillips made 18 relief appearances for Connecticut last year, going 1-0 with a save and a 2.51 ERA. He only walked six over 32 1/3 innings.

New England teams
7:00 p.m.
Vermont Lake Monsters – Gregory Paulino (NR)
at Tri-City ValleyCats – N/A
NOTE: Gregory Paulino makes his season debut tonight in Troy, however he does come in with plenty of pro experience. The 20-year-old Dominican right-hander has pitched in 33 games between the Dominican Summer League and the Arizona League A’s over the past two seasons. Paulino has solid command having only walked 35 batters in 130 1/3 innings.
