FORT MYERS, Fla. -- You'll need a scorecard to keep track of all the Red Sox pitchers lining up for work on the first weekend of Grapefruit League play.

We're here to help. Here are the pitchers the team plans to use in the first four games:

Saturday, in Fort Myers, against Tampa Bay, John Lackey will start and go two innings or 35 pitches, and will then be followed by Drake Britton, Pedro Beato, Anthony Carter, Jose De La Torre, Oscar Villareal, Alex Wilson and Steven Wright.

Sunday, when the Sox travel to Jupiter to meet the St. Louis Cardinals, Jon Lester will start (like Lackey, he'll go two innings or 35 pitches). After that, the Sox will throw Rubby De La Rosa, Junichi Tazawa, Joel Hanrahan, Andrew Bailey, Andrew Miller and Koji Uehara.

On Monday, the Sox will have a split-squad day. One group will go to Dunedin to play Toronto. Knuckleballer Steven Wright will start, followed by Allan Webster, Terry Doyle, Jose De La Torre, Pedro Beato, Chris Carpenter and Anthony Carter.

Back home, the Sox will host Tampa with Alfredo Aceves starting. The relievers will include Chris Hernandez, Daniel Bard, Clayton Mortensen, Oscar Villareal and Alex Wilson.
