Every team will open on Thurs., March 29, with the Red Sox playing a four-game series in St. Petersburg against the Tampa Bay Rays.

"Everything right now points to us going there", Red Sox manager John Farrell said Tuesday. After a three-game series against their AL East foe, Boston will head about 260 miles south for a quick two-game interleague set against the Miami Marlins.

Tampa Bay used the Mets clubhouse.

Boston fans will get their first look at the hometown team on April 5 when the Rays come to Fenway Park for a three-game series. That will be the start of a 10-game homestand.

Game times for the 2018 season, as well as the 2018 spring training schedule, will be finalized and announced at a later date.

After an 0-for-2 showing on Sunday, Holt is expected to produce 3 hits and 1 RBI in 17 plate appearances the rest of the season, according to numberFire's algorithms. There are home-and-homes series against the Braves, Marlins, and Phillies. The Sox will play the Nationals in Washington on July 4.

The Patriots Day opponent on April 16 will be Baltimore. The Sox will play 15 of their final 21 games of the season at home.
