Red Sox Lineup 6/5/12: Dustin Pedroia Is Back

Not only is Dustin Pedroia back with the Red Sox today, but he's in his old spot, second in the order. With Kevin Youkilis back, healthy, and hitting at the moment -- .289/.372/.500 since his return from the disabled list -- this is starting to look at least a little like the scary Red Sox lineup they were supposed to have. Well, sort of.

Baltimore has had their own injury woes, but both Mark Reynolds and Adam Jones are back in the lineup after missing time. Chris Davis is likely out thanks to the left-handed Jon Lester pitching for Boston tonight, hence Ronny Paulino at designated hitter, and Steve Tolleson at third base.
