    Former Lawrence County Bulldog could grab rotation spot for Red Sox

    ​Who saw this coming?!

    The Boston Red Sox have some question marks in their starting rotation. After Chris Sale and Drew Pomeranz, things are a bit uncertain.

    Rick Porcello will be back, but he pitched very poorly in 2017. Eduardo Rodriguez will be out for the start of the season with an injury. Knuckleballer ​Steven Wright should be back from injury, but it's possible he will be sidelined due to a legal situation.

    Fortunately for the Red Sox, they have a talented young pitcher who just transitioned into a starting role during winter ball in place to steal a spot.

    It would be pretty cool to have a Kentucky boy in the rotation. The article forgot about David Price however, and regardless of what it said Porcello is a lock to have a spot barring injury. That just leaves Rodriguez who is supposed to be back in April, but maybe he'll get a turn or two first.

    Only saw him pitch in the State tourney in 2011 when he could not make it out of the second inning but been rooting for him since then to advance to MLB and have a long career. Hope he gets an opportunity to make it big.
