J.D. Drew is back in the Red Sox lineup. For now.

Drew, who has missed three straight starts with a left hamstring strain, is penciled into the No. 2 spot as the Sox prepare to take on the Detroit Tigers in the second of three straight at Fenway Park.

The veteran right fielder was in the same spot Friday night before being scratched just over an hour before first pitch.

Here is the complete Red Sox lineup for Saturday's game:

Marco Scutaro, SS
J.D. Drew, RF
Kevin Youkilis, 1B
David Ortiz, DH
Victor Martinez, C
Adrian Beltre, 3B
Bill Hall, 2B
Jeremy Hermida, LF
