The Boston Red Sox will be without Trevor Story Monday night as they open their three-game set against the Detroit Tigers with Travis Shaw making his first start of the season at first base.
Jonathan Arauz will fill in for Story once again at second base, as Story missed Sunday night’s game against the Yankees due to a non-COVID illness. Jackie Bradley Jr. will play right field again after Christian Arroyo made his first start of the season there, and Bobby Dalbec will take a seat after starting the first three games at first base.
Boston picked up their first win of the season last night with a 4-3 victory over the Yankees.
