Half of them, in this case.

MLB: Boston Red Sox-Workouts
Listen to Pedro.
Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

One day after beating back Toronto’s not-ready-for-prime time squad, the Red Sox will face the Minnesota Twins (or a split-squad version of them) for what feels like the 45th time this spring. The Red Sox lead the “chase” for the Mayor’s Cup at 3 games to 1, but the teams have actually played five times, as they were rained out last week in what was sure to have been a Twins win. Oh well!

Rick Porcello pitches for Boston. Watch this game instead of Tomb Raider (it’s not great!). This is the gamethread. Here is the lineup:

  1. Mookie Betts, RF
  2. Andrew Benintendi, CF
  3. Hanley Ramirez, DH
  4. J.D. Martinez, LF
  5. Mitch Moreland, 1B
  6. Rafael Devers, 3B
  7. Brock Holt, 2B
  8. Blake Swihart, C
  9. Deven Marrero, SS
