Tucker Davidson will have better performances in his future, but Saturday night, he could celebrate officially became a major leaguer.
The Braves lost to the Red Sox, 8-2, at Truist Park in Davidson’s debut. The left-hander recorded only five outs and was charged seven runs, though only two were earned. He was haunted by erratic command and two key defensive miscues.
Davidson struck out Alex Verdugo and Rafael Devers to begin his career. He did so with a fastball-curveball mix. After walking Xander Bogaerts, he coaxed a flyout to right from J.D. Martinez to wrap up his first frame.
