The Boston Red Sox are rolling out a completely different outfield alignment Saturday against the Baltimore Orioles.

Alex Verdugo gets the start in right field, Kiké Hernández moves from second base to center field and Franchy Cordero makes his regular season debut for Boston after being acquired in the Andrew Benintendi trade this past offseason.

Cordero, 26, spent his first three seasons in the Big Leagues with the San Diego Padres before moving on to the Kansas City Royals in 2020.

For more on his debut, check out the video above from “Red Sox First Pitch,” presented by Rodenhiser Home Services.
