Jacoby Ellsbury is leading off, in left field. Mike Cameron is batting second, in center.
Left-handed starter Felix Doubront is not here. He's been promoted to Pawtucket. The move has been expected, especially with Doubront in his second year and off to a 4-0, 2.51 start.
Doubront fills the vanacy left by Joe Nelson's promotion to Boston (to replace the injured Josh Beckett).
Doubront's replacement in Portland has not been named yet. But he should be here by the weekend, especially with Portland playing a doubleheader on Saturday.
Here's today's lineup: Ellsbury LF; Cameron CF; Kalish DH; Exposito C; Rizzo 1B; Lin RF; Spears 2B; Iglesias SS; Chang 3B; (Weiland P).
