The Red Sox open a four-game series in Toronto on Monday night, with Clay Buchholz opposing R.A. Dickey. No real surprises in the Red Sox lineup, particularly with Hanley Ramirez back in Boston to have his left wrist examined before a potential DL stint. Red-hot Alejandro De Aza gets the start in left and Jackie Bradley Jr. stays in right. Shortstop Xander Bogaerts slides into the No. 3 spot in the order. The Jays are one of four teams within a game of first place in the American League East. They're a game out, in fourth, but seven games ahead of the last-place Red Sox. The Jays are 6-3 against the Red Sox this year and own a run differential of plus-88, second in the majors only to the Cardinals (plus-98). For a series preview, check out this story.
