Red Sox Vs. Rangers Lineups: Rafael Devers, Xander Bogaerts Sit


The Boston Red Sox have four games remaining this season and long have been eliminated from postseason contention, and their lineup Thursday afternoon reflects that to a degree.

The Sox and Texas Rangers will finish up their three-game set at Globe Life Park in Arlington with a Thursday matinée as Boston goes for a sweep.

Mookie Betts remains out of the lineup after leaving Tuesday’s game, which isn’t a total surprise. In addition to Betts, both Xander Bogaerts and Rafael Devers will sit, as well as Christian Vazquez.

As a result, Marco Hernandez leads off and plays second base, while Chris Owings bats ninth and plays shortstop. Brock Holt takes over at third base and is set to hit in the five-spot, while Gorkys Hernandez remains in right field.

Sandy Leon will catch Travis Lakins, who is making his third start.

Here are the lineups for both teams:

Marco Hernandez, 2B
Andrew Benintendi, LF
J.D. Martinez, DH
Sam Travis, 1B
Brock Holt, 3B
Gorkys Hernandez, RF
Jackie Bradley Jr., CF
Sandy Leon, C
Chris Owings, SS

Travis Lakins, RHP (0-1, 4.22 ERA)

Shin-Soo Choo, DH
Elvis Andrus, SS
Willie Calhoun, LF
Nomar Mazara, RF
Nick Solak, 3B
