Felix Doubront Gets First Start of the Year Against Blue Jays in Toronto


Daniel Nava is staying in the No. 2 slot.

The outfielder will once again be batting second between Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia and will serve as the team’s DH against Josh Johnson and the Blue Jays.

The lone Sox player with significant experience against Johnson is Shane Victorino, who is 12-for-38 (.316) with two doubles and two RBIs against the righty.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
