Martinez returns for the first time since Friday


July 26, 2022

The Boston Red Sox are looking to carry the momentum from last night’s win into the second of the four-game series with the Cleveland Guardians.

Boston’s designated hitter J.D. Martinez returns to the starting lineup after missing four games with back spasms. Martinez will bat cleanup for the Sox, while Bobby Dalbec will stay at third base with Rafael Devers remaining on the injured list.

Jaylin Davis heads into the nine spot for Boston and will play center field, replacing Jarren Duran. Christian Vázquez heads to first base, sending Kevin Plawecki back behind the dish.

The Red Sox will start right-hander Josh Winckowski, while the Guardians will counter with Bryan Shaw.
