Jackie Bradley Jr. Back In Red Sox Lineup; Stephen Drew Out Vs. Orioles

Jackie Bradley JrAnother game, another night on the bench for Stephen Drew.

The Boston Red Sox shortstop will miss his third consecutive game on Wednesday night when the Red Sox take on the Baltimore Orioles in their series finale at Camden Yards. Manager John Farrell informed reporters on Monday that Drew was listed as day-to-day with an oblique injury.

Taking Drew’s place at shortstop for the second straight night is Jonathan Herrera, who will bat eighth against Orioles pitcher Wei-Yin Chen.

Jackie Bradley Jr. returns to the lineup Wednesday batting ninth after sitting out Tuesday night’s 1-0 win in favor of Grady Sizemore. Jonny Gomes is also back in the lineup, playing right field and batting sixth.

The Sox will send right-hander Rubby De La Rosa to the mound, who hopes to bounce back from a disappointing loss to the Detroit Tigers in his last outing.
