Steve Pearce went 2-for-3 with a homer and a walk Monday as the Jays edged the Red Sox 4-3.
Pearce was certain to start tonight against the lefty, and his homer came off Eduardo Rodriguez. He's also playing over Ezequiel Carrera against most righties, even though Carrera has the better OPS against righties and is the superior defensive option. As long as Pearce is playing regularly, he's a fringe mixed-league option. Jul 17 - 10:48 PM
