Red Sox Rankings: Top Five First Week Performances
By Drew Peabody
A look at the players who stood out in the first week of the 2016 Boston Red Sox
We only have five games to look at so far but the results have indicated some trends you will find in here. One big trend. Guys stepping up and doing their jobs as well as or maybe better than we expected them to. Much has been said about David Price‘s first start of the season which got the team off on the good foot. After game one and how Joe Kelly was hammered in his start things weren’t looking so great but the team ramped things up and got the job done to post a 3-2 week. This list counts both overall and one game performances in its list.
To try and process Price and Craig Kimbrel giving up eight runs combined in Monday’s game (which will never happen again), take a deep breath. It’s only game six of the season. In the meantime, let’s take a look at how other guys performed well in the season’s first week
