Red Sox Vs. Indians Lineups: Danny Valencia Debuts

The Red Sox will try to salvage a series tie Sunday afternoon as they take on the Indians in Cleveland. First pitch is at 1:05 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.

After giving Pedro Ciriaco a go at third in Saturday's game, the Sox will turn to recent acquisition Danny Valencia at the hot corner against Corey Kluber. Valencia has hit a woeful .198/.212/.310 in 132 plate appearances for the Twins this season after debuting with an OPS of .799 two years ago.

Otherwise it's standard stuff for the Sox against the right-handed Kluber.
