Blake Swihart, Alejandro De Aza Back In Red Sox’s Lineup Vs. White Sox

Blake Swihart and Alejandro De Aza are back in the Boston Red Sox’s starting lineup Tuesday.

De Aza will get the start in right field one day after Shane Victorino was traded to the Los Angeles Angels. Swihart will be back behind the plate to catch for Wade Miley, who will get the start against the Chicago White Sox at Fenway Park.

Miley has been on a roll of late. The left-hander has only allowed one run over his last two outings, although neither starts resulted in a win. One issue in his last start against the Astros was his command. He walked five batters in six innings of work, but he minimized the damage with only one earned run.

With Brock Holt still nursing a knee injury, Jemile Weeks will get the start at second base and will bat ninth. Holt will be available off the bench, however, manager John Farrell said before the game.

The game won’t be the only event at Fenway on Tuesday. Pedro Martinez will have his No. 45 retired by the Red Sox, as well.
