Manager Alex Cora has a clear plan for Ceddanne Rafaela, and that will be on display Saturday at Fenway Park.

Rafaela will start in center field after getting the nod at second base during the Red Sox’s series-opening win Friday night — Rafaela shifted to center field during the matchup.

Boston will turn to Nick Pivatta to get it a game under .500 when he pitches opposite Dylan Cease. Pivetta will face off against former Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi, who did not start the series opener.

Rafaela’s start in center field takes Adam Duvall out of the lineup and moves Masataka Yoshida up one spot in the order. Enmanuel Valdez, who was recalled Friday after Luis Urías was placed on the injured list, will start at second base and bat seventh behind Trevor Story. And Reese McGuire will take Connor Wong’s place at the bottom of the order.
