Both Will Middlebrooks and Alex Hassan are not in the Sea Dogs lineup, but could be back Sunday.
Middlebrooks was slightly shaken up when he dove for a foul ball Friday night. He said he was a little sore today, but he took batting practice in the cage.
Hassan was feeling a little beat up but, overall, said he is fine. This is Hassan's first day off this season.
Here are the Red Sox and Sea Dogs lineups today:
BOSTON: Ellsbury CF; Pedroia 2B; Gonzalez 1B; Youkilis DH; Lowrie 3B; Cameron RF; Saltalamacchia C; Crawford LF; Scutaro SS. Buchholz P.
PORTLAND: Lin CF; Hee 3B; Federowicz C; Lavarnway DH; Padron 1B; Chiang LF; Tejeda 2B; Dening RF; Frias SS. Huntzinger P.Tweet
