After four days off for the all-star break the Boston Red Sox will resume their season tonight with the start of a four game series against the LA Angels.Manager John Farrel has used the time off to change up the order of his starting rotation and will hand the ball to Wade Mile to begin the second half. Rick Porcello will go in game two, Eduardo Rodriguez pitches Sunday while Monday's starter has not been announced.

Boston should get a shot in the arm tonight as Dustin Pedroia is expected to return to the line-up. The Sox sent Matt Barnes back to Pawtucket on Sunday, the feeling is that was done to make room for Pedroia.

Following the series in LA the Sox will head to Houston for three games against the Astros before returning to Fenway Park for a 10-game home stand.
