Red Sox Starting Catcher Christian Vazquez At Second Base Vs. Orioles On Patriots' Day


The Red Sox released their starting lineup for their late-morning matinee vs. the Orioles on Monday, and in its original form, it looked quite normal.


Almost an hour later, though, the Red Sox tweeted out a new lineup, and it included … catcher Christian Vazquez getting the start at second base.


Those were situations where the manager had to figure out some things in the late innings, and they certainly weren’t planned occurrences.


Speaking of harm’s way: catcher Blake Swihart was originally scheduled to start in left field for the Red Sox, but he’s back at his normal spot behind the dish in the new lineup.


And despite the rain that pummeled Boston early on Monday, it does appear as though the Red Sox and Orioles will be able to fit in an official game before round two of the storm comes back around in the afternoon.


The Red Sox are looking to win three out of four from the Orioles before making the short trip to New York to face the Yankees this week.
