Saturday Red Sox lineup: A farewell to Florida

New, comments

The Red Sox bid adieu to their spring training home for 2013 with one last game against the Twins.

USA TODAY Sports

It's time to say goodbye. After more than a month of training and meaningless games, the Red Sox are bidding farewell to Ft. Myers and Florida and heading north to start the season in New York.

First, though, there's one last game to play against the Twins.

Boston Red Sox

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

Starting Pitcher -- Felix Doubront

Chances are this is almost the lineup we'll see on Monday, just with Jackie Bradley Jr. in place of Daniel Nava, and playing left field while Jonny Gomes takes over as the designated hitter. John Farrell has confirmed that David Ross will be catching Game 3 of the series, and thus not Game 1, so it'l be interesting to see if Jarrod Saltalamacchia sticks to the sixth spot against a tough lefty like CC Sabathia. But other than that, this is what we've got. These are the 2013 Red Sox, at least for now.
