For a second straight game, David Ortiz will start the game on the bench, with Hanley Ramirez serving as the Red Sox' starting designated hitter against Texas righty Yovani Gallardo Saturday night in Arlington, Texas. Red Sox manager John Farrell had noted that the plan was to give Ortiz a couple of days off to work on his swing, with an expectation that he would be back in the starting lineup Sunday. Also starting once again is Rusney Castillo, who mans right field and hits ninth. Here is the rest of the Red Sox' lineup with Steven Wright on the mound for the visitors: Dustin Pedroia 2B Mookie Betts CF Pablo Sandoval 3B Hanley Ramirez DH Mike Napoli 1B Brock Holt LF Xander Bogaerts SS Blake Swihart C Rusney Castillo RF For all the matchups, click here.
