Check Out Red Sox’s Lineup For J.D. Martinez’s Spring Training Debut

The Boston Red Sox finally are pulling the cover off their new sports car.

Newly acquired outfielder/designated hitter J.D. Martinez will make his (official) Red Sox spring training debut Wednesday afternoon during Boston’s split-squad matchup with the Philadelphia Phillies and Minnesota Twins.

The Red Sox will roll out two separate lineups for the games, which both start at 1:05 p.m. ET. Martinez is batting fourth and playing left field in Boston’s tilt against the Twins at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, Fla.

This isn’t Martinez’s first action in a Sox uniform; he’s been getting live at-bats and even took Rick Porcello deep Tuesday in an intrasquad scrimmage. But Wednesday will be the 30-year-old’s first game against another team since he officially signed with Boston on Feb. 26.

Red Sox-Twins won’t be televised, but fans can catch the radio call on WEEI. Red Sox-Phillies will be played at Philly’s Clearwater, Fla., complex and will be broadcast on MLB Network.

Here are the lineups for both games:
