After getting the last two nights off, Xander Bogaerts is back in the lineup for tonight’s game, playing short and batting ninth. David Ross also gets into the lineup against White Sox lefty John Danks, marking the veteran catcher’s first appearance since Tuesday and first start since last Saturday.

With Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Stephen Drew out of the lineup, Will Middlebrooks moves up to the seven-hole. Jonny Gomes once again gets the start over Daniel Nava in left.

Jake Peavy will take the mound for Boston and face his former team for the first time since being traded on July 30. For full batter vs. starting pitcher matchups, click here.
