The pitcher the Red Sox acquired from the Pale Hose in the Kevin Youkilis trade will start tonight in Anaheim. RHP Zach Stewart will take to the mound for Boston, after going 3-4 with a 3.94 ERA in Pawtucket. Over his major league career with Toronto and the White Sox, Stewart has shown flashes of brilliance. For example, just last August, he went 6 1/3 innings and gave up eight hits and just one run in a 6-1 win over the Twinkies. And, he was actually the number one Blue Jays prospect in 2010, according to Baseball America.
