Shane Victorino is back in action Tuesday afternoon after a brief break to deal with "general soreness," batting first against the Rays.
- Shane Victorino, RF
- Dustin Pedroia, 2B

- Xander Bogaerts, SS
- Jackie Bradley Jr., CF

Starting Pitcher -- Justin Masterson
With Mookie Betts having made a few road starts, he'll have the day off at home today, with Jackie Bradley Jr. taking over in center. His absence will also open up the leadoff spot for Shane Victorino, who seems the natural replacement for Betts at the spot when he's not available.
Otherwise, the only starter missing is Christian Vazquez, whose schedule shift saw him catch Rick Porcello and Wade Miley in the last couple days.
First pitch is at 1:05 p.m. EST but, as seems to be our luck of late, with the (almost) full team in action for the first time in days, we also get our first game with no broadcast to speak of, television or otherwise.
