The Boston Red Sox have one last dress rehearsal before their opening act.
The Red Sox and Chicago Cubs will face off at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, Fla., on Tuesday afternoon in Boston’s final spring training game. The club has an off day Wednesday before beginning the 2018 regular season Thursday against the Rays in Tampa Bay.
Right-hander Hector Velazquez will get the start for the Sox, whose lineup features many projected Opening Day starters. Rafael Devers isn’t in the lineup after exiting Monday’s game against the Cubs with an injury.
Here’s Boston’s starting nine:
1. Mookie Betts, RF
2. J.D. Martinez, DH
3. Eduardo Nunez, 2B
4. Andrew Benintendi, LF
5. Mitch Moreland, 1B
6. Christian Vazquez, C
7. Jackie Bradley Jr., CF
8. Ivan De Jesus, 3B
9. Brock Holt, SS
