Andrew Cashner makes his Boston Red Sox debut at Fenway Park against Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and the Toronto Blue Jays. Cashner was acquired Saturday from Baltimore for two 17-year-old prospects. The 32-year-old righty went 9-3 with a 3.83 ERA in 17 starts for the team with the worst record in the majors. He has gone at least six innings in his last five outings and has a 1.41 ERA since the beginning of June.
“This is the World Series champs. It’s a chance to help these guys get to where they want to go,” Cashner said. “I’m definitely looking forward to the race. It’s something I haven’t been in, really.”
