SAN FRANCISCO — Xander Bogaerts will make his major-league debut Tuesday against the Giants, starting at shortstop while hitting seventh. With righty Ryan Vogelsong on the mound for San Francisco, Stephen Drew gets the night off to make way for Bogaerts.
Also sitting out of the starting lineup will be David Ortiz and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Mike Carp replaces Ortiz at first (with Mike Napoli still nursing an injured foot), while David Ross makes his first appearance since coming off the 60-day disabled list (concussion).
