Red Sox-Blue Jays lineups: Porcello looks to get back on track

Red Sox-Blue Jays lineups: Porcello looks to get back on track

Dustin Pedroia's back in the lineup after a day off and Eduardo Rodriguez is back with the team after a short paternity leave.

Now the Red Sox hope Rick Porcello is back to form.

The defending American League Cy Young Award winner was routed by the Rays last Friday night at Fenway, the only game Boston lost in its wraparound four-game series with Tampa Bay. He returns to the mound tonight as the Sox look for their second win a row in Toronto over the struggling Blue Jays, and their fifth straight victory overall.

The lineups:

RED SOX
Dustin Pedroia 2B
Andrew Benintendi CF
Mookie Betts RF
Hanley Ramirez DH
Mitch Moreland 1B
Xander Bogaerts SS
Chris Young LF
Pablo Sandoval 3B
Sandy Leon C
-----
Rick Porcello P

BLUE JAYS
Kevin Pillar CF
Ezequiel Carrera LF
Jose Bautista RF
Kendrys Morales DH
Troy Tulowitzki SS
Russell Martin C

Report: Derek Jeter-Jeb Bush group win auction for Marlins

Report: Derek Jeter-Jeb Bush group win auction for Marlins

A group led by former Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has won the auction for the Miami Marlins with a $1.3 billion bid, Bloomberg reported.

Current Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria bought the team in 2002 for $158 million. Forbes valued the franchise at $940 million.

The ownership change needs MLB approval. Bush’s brother, former President George W. Bush, once owned the Texas Rangers. Jeter, 42, lives in Florida, retired from the Yankees after 2014 season and is a sure-fire Hall of Famer.
