Tellez went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run Thursday against the Red Sox.

Tellez took Nathan Eovaldi deep in the third inning -- a monster blast into the right-field stands -- to record his third home run of the season. After being out of the lineup Tuesday with left-hander Chris Sale on the mound, Tellez returned to the lineup as the first baseman and batted fifth. Though he's striking out at nearly a 30 percent clip early on, Tellez has also shown he's capable of providing plenty of power; he holds a .310 ISO so far.
