Wade Miley / Alex Gonzalez
Pedroia, 2BDavid Ortiz makes his return to the lineup after a couple of days of working on his swing. Big Papi is hitting .216/.303/.377 and is currently stuck in a 3-for-31 slump (.097 in his last eight games).
Sometimes it [the time off] works and sometimes it doesn't. For me, it worked once. I'll try it again now and go from there. I've just been thinking too much and overdoing things. Sometimes that works and sometimes that doesn't. I know this ballclub needs me, and now we have a long season ahead. I'm just going to try to pull the best out of this.Miley has a 1.25 ERA over his last three starts (A's, Rangers, Angels). In his last outing, against Los Angeles, he gave up only one run and four hits in eight innings.
"Chi Chi" Gonzalez, 23, will be making his major league debut. He was the Rangers' No. 1 draft pick in 2013 and has a 4.15 ERA in AAA this season.
