Red Sox Vs. Indians Lineups: Mike Aviles Bats Ninth Against Zach McAllister

The Red Sox will face Zach McAllister, not Josh Tomlin in Fenway Park tonight as they take on the Cleveland Indians in the third game of their four-game series.

Tomlin was scheduled to face the Red Sox today, but a late trip to the disabled list left the Indians turning to Triple-A Columbus in search of a replacement. Zach McAllister has thrown 35 innings of 2.83 ERA ball in Columbus so far this season, relying on a low 90s fastball along with a slider and changeup.

The Sox will have Mike Aviles back in the lineup Saturday, batting ninth.
