John Farrell will have to plan his lineups very carefully after the Boston Red Sox finish their series against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Fenway Park.

Sunday’s game against the D-Backs marks the end of a quick six-game homestand, and the Red Sox are about to enter a grueling 11-game stretch on the road. Because Monday’s game against the Cleveland Indians is a makeup game from April, the Red Sox don’t have any days off for the rest of August and will jump around from Cleveland to Baltimore to Detroit to St. Petersburg, Fla., over the next week and a half.

Farrell talked about the challenges the team faces in going to four different ballparks in five days. Hear what he had to say on “Red Sox Gameday Live” in the video above.
