Red Sox vs. Padres lineups: Stephen Drew remains missing

USA TODAY Sports

The Red Sox are still stuck with a 24-man roster thanks to the missing Stephen Drew.

The Red Sox have been one man down in the bullpen for the last few days thanks to the injured-but-not-DLed Stephen Drew. They'll remain handicapped Tuesday night as Stephen Drew misses another game, with Brandon Snyder filling in for the absent shortstop.

Boston Red Sox (50-34)

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Shane Victorino, RF
  3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  4. David Ortiz, DH
  5. Mike Napoli, 1B
  6. Jonny Gomes, LF
  7. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
  8. Brandon Snyder, 3B
  9. Jose Iglesias, SS

Starting Pitcher -- John Lackey

San Diego Padres (40-43)

  1. Logan Forsythe, 2B
  2. Chris Denorfia, RF
  3. Carlos Quentin, DH
  4. Chase Headley, 3B
  5. Kyle Blanks, LF
  6. Jesus Guzman, 1B
  7. Nick Hundley, C
  8. Alexi Amarista, CF
  9. Pedro Ciriaco, SS

Starting Pitcher -- Robbie Erlin

Who the heck is Robbie Erlin? He's 22 with 15 innings of MLB history, his average fastball is under 90 MPH, and--you guessed it, he's a lefty! He's also been really good in the minor leagues, right up until hitting the infamous PCL. That's the perfect "soft-tossing lefty straight out of the minors" storm along with the possibility that there might well be some quality there as well. Hardly ideal.

Here's hoping the right-handed lineup does its job against Erlin, like it sort of did against Buehrle. Having David Ortiz back in the lineup certainly can't hurt, either.
