One day after sitting against Rangers southpaw Derek Holland, Red Sox switch-hitter Daniel Nava is back in the lineup on Saturday night against Texas right-hander Alexi Ogando. Nava has walked in his only career plate appearance against Ogando, while Jonny Gomes (who started in left on Friday, but will sit on Saturday) is 0-for-2 against him.
John Lackey will be on the mound for his third start of the year, working with Jarrod Saltalamacchia behind the plate.
