TORONTO -- After leaving Sunday's game with a contused right foot -- having fouled a ball off himself in the fourth inning -- David Ortiz is not in the Red Sox' starting lineup Monday against Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ. While an initial exam ruled out any fracture, Ortiz was noticeably sore following the Sox' loss Sunday. Taking his place at designated hitter will be Mike Napoli, with Allen Craig getting his first start at first base as a member of the Red Sox. Ortiz has more home runs (37) at Rogers Centre than any other visiting player. Here is the Sox' lineup with Clay Buchholz on the hill for the visitors: Brock Holt SS Dustin Pedroia 2B Yoenis Cespedes LF Mike Napoli DH Allen Craig 1B Daniel Nava RF Will Middlebrooks 3B Mookie Betts CF Christian Vazquez C
