  5. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
  6. Ryan Lavarnway, C
  7. Darnell McDonald, RF
  8. Carl Crawford, LF
  9. Marco Scutaro, SS

Ryan Lavarnway is starting his first game of the season at catcher due to injuries suffered by both Jason Varitek and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. He will be catching for pitcher Erik Bedard.
