In terms of importance of spring training games, Thursday is a pretty big one as it is the debut of Dustin Pedroia.

Pedroia will lead off and play second base against the Twins. He is returning from cartilage restoration surgery on his left knee that cost him all but three games last year.

It isn't just Pedroia either, as there are plenty of starters getting action, including Blake Swihart behind the plate.

Here's the complete lineup.

Dustin Pedroia, 2B

Mookie Betts, RF

Rafael Devers, 3B

J.D. Martinez, DH

Xander Bogaerts, SS

Mitch Moreland, 1B

Jackie Bradley Jr., CF

Brock Holt, LF

Blake Swihart, C

Brian Johnson, LHP
