Look For A Lefty-Loaded Sox Lineup Tonight In Atlanta

Tonight, the Red Sox face Atlanta right-handed starter Julio Teherán. The 25-year-old Colombian has experienced a shaky start to the 2016 season—particularly against left-handed batters (9.31 ERA). So look for Boston manager John Farrell to load up his batting order with port-siders tonight. We may see David Ortiz at first base (since there's no DH in NL cities)—along with Brock Holt, Travis Shaw, and Jackie Bradley, Jr. If Marco Hernandez wasn't optioned to AAA, you might have seven seen him in tonight's line-up playing short. The Carmine Hose will play two games against the Braves in Atlanta, then two more at Fenway on Wednesday night and Thursday.
