Red Sox Continue to Wait Before Hosting ALDS

Red Sox B in Black

By HOWARD ULMAN, AP Sports Writer

BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox have some decisions to make and plenty of time to make them.

After tying for the best record in the majors, they won’t play until Friday night when they host the opener of the AL division series.

They must decide whether to keep 10 or 11 pitchers for the best-of-five series. They also must finalize their rotation.

The Red Sox won’t know their opponent until Wednesday night’s wild-card game in Cleveland between the Indians and the winner of Monday night’s AL tiebreaker between the Tampa Bay Rays and Texas Rangers. Boston manager John Farrell says the opponent could affect the roster composition, but not the rotation.

The Red Sox had Monday off and plan three days of workouts, with a simulated game on Wednesday.
