The Red Sox had suggested a plan to employ five players -- Brock Holt, Jackie Bradley, Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts and Stephen Drew -- at four positions (center, right, third, short) in order to ensure regular playing time for the entire group. On Tuesday, the Sox will expand that equation to seven-for-five, as Daniel Nava and Jonny Gomes will sit in favor of an outfield that features Holt in left, Bradley in center and Betts in right. Bogaerts will be at third while Drew plays short against Cubs starter Edwin Jackson. RED SOX LINEUP Brock Holt, LF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Mike Napoli, 1B A.J.
