New, 8 comments

It's a split squad day for the Red Sox, even if it's all contained to Fort Myers.

The Red Sox will play two today, keeping the starting outfield in JetBlue to take on the Jays and sending the infield across town to face the Twins.

Boston Red Sox (15-10) vs. Toronto Blue Jays

  1. Mookie Betts, CF
  2. Shane Victorino, RF
  3. David Ortiz, DH
  4. Hanley Ramirez, LF
  5. Allen Craig, 1B
  6. Brock Holt, SS
  7. Jemile Weeks, 3B
  8. Jeff Bianchi, 2B
  9. Humberto Quintero, C
Starting Pitcher -- Steven Wright

Boston Red Sox (15-10) vs. Minnesota Twins

  1. Rusney Castillo, RF
  2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  3. Pablo Sandoval, 3B
  4. Mike Napoli, 1B
  5. Daniel Nava, LF
  6. Xander Bogaerts, SS
  7. Jackie Bradley Jr., CF
  8. Travis Shaw, DH
  9. Sandy Leon, C

Starting Pitcher -- Clay Buchholz

Clay Buchholz gets to bring the infield with him, as well as Sandy Leon. If you're going to read into anything in these lineups, it's that last bit that "matters". With Buchholz set to start Opening Day, he'll probably be throwing the ball to Ryan Hanigan, but it would make sense to get Hanigan's expected backup the start with the actual Major League pitcher today, leaving Steven Wright to the one who's more likely to miss out.

First pitches come at 1:05 p.m. EST, but only the Toronto game will have a broadcast by NESN.
