Trevor Story returns to the Boston Red Sox lineup but Xander Bogaerts is out of the lineup and won’t face old teammate Eduardo Rodriguez.
Nathan Eovaldi will start for the Sox at 1:10 p.m. ET, while Christian Arroyo will play shortstop. Cora said Story told him that he’s ready to go, and also said it’s general soreness for Bogaerts.
“General soreness,” Cora said. “We can take advantage, too. I was like, ‘Hey, tomorrow?’ and he said yeah. I said, ‘Hey, it’s Eddie.’ and he was like, ‘I’m good. I’ll face him at one point.’ But it’s one of those that’s part of it. He wanted to play Saturday and I told him, ‘If you play Saturday, at one point, you will need an off day.’ It just happens that it’s today.”
