Batting sixth at Designated Hitter – Adrian Gonzalez (age 38)

Is baseball love lovelier the second time around? In this instances, it is. The Red Sox have used a mix and match approach to DH since the trade of Ramirez and A-Gon provided consistency in that slot during the 2019 season.

The return to Boston has been quite pleasant and the left-handed stroke certainly provided some significant punch in the lower part of the order.

At 38-years-old Gonzalez has transitioned into elder baseball statesman territory. Gone is the bitterness of the first tour of duty in Boston.
