Josh Reddick starts in right field and bats fifth Saturday for the Red Sox against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.

Reddick, a .299 hitter against right-handed pitchers this season, will protect designated hitter David Ortiz in the batting order against Rays right-hander Jeremy Hellickson. The 24-year-old righty is a murder on right-handed batters, holding them to a .195 average, and is only a little more forgiving against lefties (.232).

Jed Lowrie fills in at third base again for Kevin Youkilis, who is still day-to-day with soreness in his hip. Marco Scutaro bats eighth and plays shortstop. Jarrod Saltalamachia bats ninth and catches.
