Saturday Red Sox Lineup: Second Line Faces Rays

USA TODAY Sports

The Red Sox' B-team is in Port Charlotte Saturday to take on the Tampa Bay Rays.

After a nice 5-0 win over the Minnesota Twins Friday night, the Red Sox starters will take the day off, giving the backups a chance to show their stuff against the Tampa Bay Rays in Port Charlotte.

Boston Red Sox

  1. Brock Holt, 2B
  2. Jose Iglesias, SS
  3. Jackie Bradley Jr., CF
  4. Ryan Lavarnway, C
  5. Lyle Overbay, 1B
  6. Mauro Gomez, DH
  7. Drew Sutton, 3B
  8. Juan Carlos Linares, LF
  9. Ronald Bermudez, RF

Starting Pitcher -- Alfredo Aceves

Believe it or not, Jackie Bradley will actually be trying to rebound today, after going 0-for-2 in Friday afternoon's game against the Orioles. Of course, he was robbed of a hit along the way by a good defensive play at third, but still.

Jose Iglesias and Alfredo Aceves, meanwhile, might be the players with the most to gain. With Stephen Drew still not back from his concussion, Iglesias could give John Farrell a reason to give him the job in the meantime instead of, say, Pedro Ciriaco. As for Alfredo Aceves, he's got $2.65 million riding on being able to convince Farrell (and probably Ben Cherington) he's worth that last bullpen spot.
