Lineup: Saltalamacchia out, Lavarnway in

NEW YORK — Ryan Lavarnway will get the start at catcher for the Red Sox Thursday night in their series-opener against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Regular starting backstop Jarrod Saltalamacchia continues to nurse a sore back, having sat out the previous two games.

Against Yankees starter Ivan Nova, Daniel Nava will get the call to hit in the No. 5 spot. The left fielder enters the game with the second-most at-bats of any Red Sox in the batting order’s position (behind Mike Napoli), hitting .345 with a .992 OPS while hitting fifth.

Here is the Red Sox lineup with Jake Peavy on the mound for the Red Sox:

Jacoby Ellsbury CF

Shane Victorino RF

Dustin Pedroia 2B

David Ortiz DH

Daniel Nava LF

Mike Napoli 1B

Stephen Drew SS

Ryan Lavarnway C

Will Middlebrooks 3B
