Red Sox Vs. Rays Lineups: Adrian Gonzalez Still Out Against David Price

The Red Sox will once again be without Adrian Gonzalez as they take on the Tampa Bay Rays and David Price Saturday night.

While Gonzalez had been out before the All-Star Break with an illness, now it appears that the first baseman's back is acting up, leaving the Sox to turn to...

Brent Lillibridge.

That's right. The man with a .388 OPS will be playing at one of the highest-offense positions in any team's lineup.

Otherwise the Sox will go with their righty-heavy lineup--or as much of it as they can still produce.

Boston Red Sox (44-43)

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Pedro Ciriaco, 2B
  3. David Ortiz, DH
  4. Cody Ross, RF
  5. Will Middlebrooks, 3B
  6. Mike Aviles, SS
  7. Kelly Shoppach, C
  8. Brent Lillibridge, 1B
  9. Daniel Nava, LF
