ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Red Sox will have a different look in the outfield in Thursday's series finale against the Rays. Allen Craig will start in left field, and Daniel Nava will start in right field. It was a scheduled day off for Shane Victorino, even though he injured his hamstring Wednesday night. Hanley Ramirez is also out of the lineup. David Ortiz is the designated hitter, as he's still appealing his suspension, and Brock Holt will get his second straight day off. Sandy Leon will catch starter Clay Buchholz, as the Red Sox lineup goes up against Rays right-hander Jake Odorizzi. For an extensive look at the matchups, click here. 1. Mookie Betts, CF 2.
