HOUSTON — The trolling executing by Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman barely registered with Red Sox right-hander Nathan Eovaldi and Abraham Almonte Jersey , subsequently, didn’t merit much of a response.Bregman was one of three Houston batters to homer in succession off Eovaldi on June 20 at Minute Maid Park when Eovaldi pitched for the Tampa Bay Rays, and Bregman referred to that decisive string of blasts on social media as the scene of the American League Championship Series changed venues from Fenway Park to Minute Maid Park on Monday. With Eovaldi set to take the ball for Boston in Game 3 on Tuesday, his primary focus was elsewhere.“I feel I’m a completely different pitcher,” Eovaldi said. “I’m attacking it a lot differently. I’m going to try to keep the same approach as I’ve been attacking hitters now and moving forward. They have (a) lot of aggressive guys in the lineup. They swing early in the counts. Not too many of them like to walk. So, try and keep them in the ballpark and go from there.”Article continues below ...George Springer and Jose Altuve sandwiched solo home runs around the Bregman dinger in the sixth inning of that Astros 5-1 victory, with Altuve recording a 112.3 exit velocity with the second of his two homers off Eovaldi that game. That was one of three home runs Eovaldi surrendered during the season with an exit velocity of 110-plus miles per hour and http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-grimm-jersey , of the 14 homers he allowed during the season, four were recorded by the Astros in that contest.Although he noted a usage increase in his cutter with the Red Sox, whom he joined on July 29, the numbers reveal that Eovaldi relied on his four-seam fastball more during the final month and against the Yankees in the AL Division Series when he allowed one run on five hits with five strikeouts over seven innings in a 16-1 victory in Game 3 at Yankee Stadium. He will make his second career postseason start in similar circumstances: on the road with a series even at 1-1.Astros left-hander Dallas Keuchel will oppose Eovaldi with seven days of rest since his start in Game 3 of the ALDS against the Cleveland Indians. Keuchel has scuffled in his career against the Red Sox (0-1, 9.15 ERA over four appearances), with the challenge of maintaining sharpness between outings something requiring an attention to detail.“Well, I’m the kind of (pitcher) who needs to get off the mound a lot more than other guys Burch Smith Jersey ,” Keuchel said. “But then the other side of it, the flipside was I barely touched the mound last year when I was going through some stuff. And kind of know what it takes to get through and make sure you’re ready to go. I’ve been fortunate enough to be healthy this whole season and kind of get off the mound from my bullpen days.“So I treated a few of the in-between days from Cleveland like a bullpen day — threw a light BP the day before we went to Boston. And it just feels good to get out there and face some live hitting whether it’s our team or whoever. So, I have just been trying to get off the mound as much as possible, try to carry that over.” Hannah Foslien/Getty ImagesHaving already acquired J.A. Happ, the New York Yankees bolstered their starting rotation even further on Monday by adding Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Lance Lynn.The Yankees announcedthey traded first baseman Tyler Austin and minor league starting pitcher Luis Rijo to the Twins in return for Lynn.Sports Illustrated's Jon Tayler questioned the move from New York's perspectivesince the teamtradedright-handed reliever Adam Warren, who essentially occupied the same role Lynn likely will with the pitching staff:Jon Tayler, Smiling Politely JATaylerSo the Yankees salary-dumped a good reliever/swingman in Adam Warren to get a worse pitcher in Lance Lynn (who hasnt pitched in relief since 2012) Blaine Boyer Jersey , and they also gave up cheap 1B/OF depth to do it in Tyler Austin. I cant say that I follow the logic here.TheNew York Post's Joel Sherman reported the Yankees at least won't add much money to their payroll by essentially swapping Warren for Lynn:Joel Sherman Joelsherman1Lynn owed about $4.3M. Hear #Twins will pay about $2M of that. Between offset and dealing Warren and $1.18M-ish left on his deal, #Yankees stayed about neutral in salary in this days work.Lynn might benefit from a move to the bullpen. In his first two years since undergoing Tommy John surgery, he's 18-16 with a 4.02 ERA and a 4.78 FIP, according toBaseball Reference.However, Lynn hasn't pitched in a relief role since the 2015 postseason, and his last regular-season appearance out of the bullpen was in 2012.Ultimately, the Yankees may value Lynn's ability to move into the rotation in an emergency over Warren's proven track record as a reliever.The Twins Trevor Cahill Jersey , meanwhile, get a 26-year-old first baseman who's underteam controlfor four more seasons and a young pitcher who might develop into something down the road.Austin is batting .230 with 15 home runs and 43 RBI in 85 career MLB games, and the 19-year-old Rijo is4-1 with a 2.77 ERA in seven minor league appearances in 2018.That's a solid return given both Lynn's performance and the fact he's only a half-season rental.
