Mother Nature quickly interrupted Michael Kopech’s first start at home for the Chicago White Sox.On Friday http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-willie-mays-jersey , Kopech will get another opportunity to showcase his big arm in front of Chicago fans who have waited all season to see him promoted from the minors. The 22-year-old right-hander is 1-0 with a 1.13 ERA in his first two outings, walking none and striking out eight in eight innings.His first start in Chicago, on Aug. 21, was limited to two innings before a rain delay ended his evening, as the White Sox elected not to put him back on the mound after the 52-minute interruption. He did not allow a run in that debut, while allowing three hits and striking out four.Article continues below ...Kopech’s next assignment is against the Boston Red Sox — the team that drafted him and helped to develop him before shipping him to Chicago as part of a deal that yielded ace left-hander Chris Sale.What can Kopech do to avoid feeling too hyped up for his first time facing Boston?“Take a deep breath and make pitches,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria said to the Chicago Tribune. “Hopefully he continues to develop, continues to command the zone. It’s electric stuff.“Hopefully he’ll just continue to trust himself, which he is doing, and just enjoy being here. Know that he’s capable of doing what he’s doing because of this tremendous gift he has.”Kopech declined to speak about his emotions heading into the start, instead telling reporters that he would speak about the experience after his outing Friday night.Chicago (53-81) is feeling better about its fortunes despite a disappointing loss in Thursday night’s series opener. The Red Sox rallied for five runs in the ninth to claim a 9-4 victory.Boston (93-42) has a strong starting rotation and a potent lineup, as evidenced by home runs from Mookie Betts (No. 29 of the season) and J.D. Martinez (No. 39) in the comeback win over Chicago.The Red Sox will turn to right-hander Nathan Eovaldi (5-6, 4.15 ERA) in the second game of a four-game series. The 28-year-old will be making his seventh start since joining the Red Sox. He is 2-2 with a 3.94 ERA in his first six outings with Boston after going 3-4 with a 4.26 ERA in 10 starts for the Tampa Bay Rays.In two career games (one start) against the White Sox, Eovaldi is 1-0 with a 3.52 ERA. He has walked five and fanned six in 7 2/3 innings.Earlier this week, Eovaldi worked with Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez to fine-tune his delivery.“If Pedro comes around and he has something to say Will Clark Jersey , I’m going to listen,” Eovaldi said to MassLive.com. “He said he noticed something with my landing foot. I guess I land on my heel when I land. He was saying if I try to land more with my toe, he thinks I’ll have a little bit better control of my offspeed pitches. And really with everything. It will make the fastball better, too.”The insights from Martinez served as a revelation for Eovaldi, who previously had focused on his arm.“It definitely feels a little different just because I haven’t really been focusing on my landing foot,” he said. “I’ve been focusing on other things thinking that was the issue. We’ll have to see (Friday) how everything works out. But it definitely feels a lot better.” TORONTO (AP) — There’s one rookie slugger everyone wants to see at Blue Jays spring training this year, even though no one expects him to crack the opening day lineup.Still, it won’t be long before Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and his booming bat become lineup fixtures for the rebuilding Blue Jays.Guerrero Jr. was born in Montreal, where his Hall of Fame father starred for the Expos.More than two decades after his dad flashed All-Star form north of the border, the son is set to take a different Canadian city by storm.Signed by Toronto in 2015, Guerrero Jr. turns 20 on March 16. Beefy and broad-shouldered, his stance and explosive swing are almost identical to those of his prodigious dad. Guerrero Jr. has battered baseballs at every level of the minors, flirting with .400 at Double-A last season before a knee injury in June. He returned and rose to Triple-A in July, posting a.381 average with 20 homers and 77 RBI in 91 games between the two levels.A third baseman whose defensive skills lag behind his bat, Guerrero’s big league arrival will likely wait a few weeks while the Blue Jaysdelay starting his service time long enough to guarantee a seventh season of club control before free agency.For now Barry Bonds Jersey , Guerrero Jr. will only join his future teammates in spring exhibitions, giving everyone a glimpse of what’s to come.NEW LOOKToronto’s changes begin with rookie manager Charlie Montoyo, who left his job as Tampa Bay bench coach to replace John Gibbons. After dealing veterans J.A. Happ and Josh Donaldson last summer, the Blue Jays continued to shed high-priced stars this offseason. In December, Toronto released oft-injured shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who had $38 million left on his contract. In January, the Jays traded catcher Russell Martin to the Dodgers, sending along more than $16 million of Martin’s $20 millionsalary. New faces include workhorse infielder Freddy Galvis, right-handers Matt Shoemaker and David Phelps and left-hander Clayton Richard.ROOKIES TO WATCHWith Martin gone, Toronto will make one of two rookies its primary catcher. Both Danny Jansen and Reese McGuire are 23 years old as camp opens. Each debuted last season, with Jansen arriving one month after playing in the All Star Futures game, and McGuire getting a brief cameo in September. Whoever doesn’t win the starting job will likely go to Triple-A Buffalo. Veteran Luke Maile is Toronto’s projected backup.THEY’RE SETMiddle infield. Besides dumping Tulo, the Blue Jays lost two versatile infielders this offseason, trading Aledmys Diaz to Houston and parting ways with Yangervis Solarte. Even so, they’re still well-stocked with infielders http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-madison-bumgarner-jersey , having added the sure-handed Galvis to a group including prospect Lourdes Gurriel Jr., Devon Travis, Richard Urena, and Brandon Drury. Roles for these players remain unclear as camp begins, but the Blue Jays don’t lack options.THEY’RE NOTStarting pitching.Right-handers Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman give Toronto two potential horses at the top of the rotation, but both are coming off unproductive, injury-marred seasons. Hopes are high for left-hander Ryan Borucki, who posted an impressive 3.87 ERA in 17 starts as a rookie, but there will likely be sophomore bumps. While Shoemaker and Richard provide veteran depth, the starting staff doesn’t inspire confidence.ON DECKThe Blue Jays will keep shopping for rotation and bullpen help throughout spring training, looking to add players on major and minor league deals. There’s also the possibility Toronto trades from its position player surplus, or deals a veteran such as Stroman, in exchange for young arms. Toronto begins the regular season at home to Detroit on March 28.
