Josh Reddick will make his fourth start of the season and play center field in place of Mike Cameron when the Red Sox take on the Cleveland Indians on Monday in the first of four straight at Progressive Field.
Reddick, recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday, is 2-for-9 (.222) in limited duty for the big club. He is back in the lineup a day after Cameron had returned from a short layoff.
Cameron, still bothered by soreness in his side, went 1-for-3 with a pair of walks in Sunday's 4-3 loss in Baltimore, making a clutch over-the-shoulder catch in the ninth to preserve a tie game.
It was Cameron's first game played in June.
Reddick has never faced Indians starter Fausto Carmona. Among those who have, designated hitter David Ortiz has had the most success, going 4-for-8 with a home run, a double and four RBIs against Carmona.
Marco Scutaro is a .389 (7-for-18) lifetime hitter when facing Carmona. The rest of the Red Sox starters are a combined 2-for-17.
Here are the complete lineups for both teams:
