Lineups: Youkilis at 3rd; Beltre, Lowell sit

 

BALTIMORE -- Red Sox outfielder Josh Reddick, who was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket this morning, is in the Sox' starting lineup, with both Jeremy Hermida (chest) and Mike Cameron (abdomen) out of the lineup. Hermida is out after running into third baseman Adrian Beltre while chasing a fly ball on Friday night. Beltre, too, is out of the lineup due to soreness in his knee, groin and ankle, though he made clear that he felt well enough to play, and manager Terry Francona said that he had to fight Beltre to keep him out of the lineup.

 

Rather than have Mike Lowell play third base, the Sox decided to have Kevin Youkilis move across the diamond for his first start of the year at third. The switch-hitting Victor Martinez gets the start at first base against Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie. Neither Martinez (1-for-6) nor Lowell (.174) has a particularly impressive track record of success against Guthrie.

Red Sox call up Reddick, option Atchison

BALTIMORE -- With Red Sox outfielder Jeremy Hermida having been injured in a collision with third baseman Adrian Beltre while chasing a foul ball on Friday, the Red Sox have brought outfielder Josh Reddick to Baltimore to join the club. In order to make room for the outfielder on the major league roster, the team optioned pitcher Scott Atchison to Triple-A Pawtucket.

 

Reddick has been struggling in Triple-A Pawtucket this year. The 23-year-old is hitting .193 with a .241 OBP, .362 slugging mark and .603 OPS, though he does have six homers. He also spent three games in the majors earlier this year after both Jacoby Ellsbury and Mike Cameron were placed on the disabled list, going 1-for-6 with a double.

Red Sox Recap: Yo Adrian or no Adrian?

The Red Sox steamrolled the Orioles on a day when Baltimore shook up its clubhouse in search of a spark. Just hours after the Orioles held a press conference to announce the firing of Dave Trembley and his replacement by interim manager Juan Samuel (an admission by O's GM Andy MacPhail that Baltimore had taken "a giant step back"), the Sox flattened them in an 11-0 win in Baltimore.
