Athough not as crazy as Monday, Tuesday is another interesting lineup for the Red Sox.

Two days after fouling a pitch off his foot, Andrew Benintendi remains out, and fresh off of being recalled Sandy Leon will be behind the plate catching Red Sox starter Chris Sale. J.D. Martinez will play left field as they go up against Yankees left-hander James Paxton.

Steve Pearce will serve as the designed hitter and Dustin Pedroia will start the night on the bench.

Here's the complete Red Sox lineup.

Mookie Betts, RF

Xander Bogaerts, SS

J.D. Martinez, LF

Steve Pearce, DH

Mitch Moreland, 1B

Eduardo Nunez, 2B
