Before we get to the Dogs lineup, a little it of news. MLB.com is reporting that the Red Sox have traded outfielder Jonathan Van Every back to the Pirates for minor league catcher Josue Peley, 22, currently playing in lower Class A.
As for the Sea Dogs, they will need a pitcher to replace Stephen Fife (DL because of bruised foot/rest) for Tuesday's start in Trenton ... shortstop Jose Iglesias shows little improvement with his bruised hand. The guess here is that he's out for at least a week.
Now the Dogs lineup for today's NESN-televised game:
Spears 2B; Lin CF; Kalish RF; Exposito C; Rizzo 1B; Chang 3B; Navarro SS; Chiang LF; Apodaca DH (Casey Kelly P)
