Who is the Cleveland Guardians probable starting pitcher?

Xzavion Curry will toe the slab for his first start of the season on Monday morning. Curry made 41 appearances last season for the Cleveland Guardians, including nine starts, so starting a game is not a new concept for him. The 25-year-old righty finished 2023 with a 4.07 ERA and 1.347 WHIP in 95 innings pitched.

Curry has faced Boston before, but there is not a particularly large sample size, just 11 at-bats. In those at-bats, Curry allowed three hits (all singles), struck out three, and did not walk a batter while preventing any runs being driven in.

Who will the Cleveland Guardians lineup face?

Boston will start Kutter Crawford for the first game of the series. Crawford has begun the season pitching incredibly well and could be difficult for the Guardians bats to solve in this matchup. The 28-year-old has allowed only one run (two total) in his first 15.2 innings to start the year. But if there is one area that the Guardians could take advantage of, it is his tendency to issue walks. Crawford has walked eight batters on the year, seven coming in his last two starts. Patience is going to be required but it could pay off if exercised properly.

Cleveland hitters only have 29 at-bats against Crawford, and they have been quite productive. They have 10 hits in these matchups, including three doubles and two home runs. Notable track records include Josh Naylor (3-5, two doubles) and Jose Ramirez (2-6, one home run). The stars could be aligning for a productive day at the plate for the Guardians at Fenway Park.
