Red Sox Vs. Indians Lineup: Dustin Pedroia At DH Against Ubaldo Jimenez

The Red Sox will kick off a four-game set against the Cleveland Indians Thursday night as they send Felix Doubront to the mound against Ubaldo Jimenez. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN, the MLB Network, and WEEI.

The Sox will have both Pedro Ciriaco and Mike Aviles in the lineup Thursday night as they shift Dustin Pedroia to the DH role for the night. Despite a very impressive performance in the season so far, Ciriaco has found playing time difficult to come by since the Sox got their middle-infield pairing back at full force. He's only received five at bats in the last six games, four of them coming in his start Wednesday against the Rangers.

Otherwise it's typical stuff for the Sox against the right-handed Jimenez.
