It's been an "either/or" situation for Shane Victorino and Rusney Castillo this spring, but at least for today both will see the starting lineup as the Red Sox take on the Cardinals.

Boston Red Sox (10-8)

  1. Mookie Betts, CF
  2. Shane Victorino, DH
  3. Rusney Castillo, RF
  4. Pablo Sandoval, 3B
  5. Daniel Nava, 1B
  6. Brock Holt, 2B
  7. Bryce Brentz, LF
  8. Jeff Bianchi, SS
  9. Humberto Quintero, C

Starting Pitcher -- Rick Porcello

The bad news: still no Ortiz or Napoli to be found, even with the Red Sox playing at home once again. We're probably now in that territory between concern and disinterest where, man, it'd be real nice to see them pop their head in for a game. You know, just to say hi and let us know that everything's alright. You two never call anymore.

First pitch is at 1:05 p.m. ET, but as will be the case for much of the week to come, there's no broadcast in sight. Or hearing. You get the idea.
