Rays Vs. Red Sox Lineups: Luke Scott Returns To Lineup Against Buchholz

The Tampa Bay Rays (4-3) take on the Boston Red Sox (2-5) on Saturday afternoon with one of the key hitters back in the linuep. After missing several starts with hamstring issues, DH Luke Scott retuns to the starting group at the No. 6 spot in the lineup.

Here is a look at today's starters, courtesy of MLB.com:

  1. CF Desmond Jennings
  2. 1B Carlos Pena
  3. 3B Evan Longoria
  4. LF Matt Joyce
  5. RF Ben Zobrist
  6. DH Luke Scott
  7. 2B Jeff Keppinger
  8. C Jose Molina
  9. SS Sean Rodriguez

With RHP Jeremy Hellickson on the mound, the Rays infield will need to be sure to wear their sunglasses. In 2011, Hellickson had one of the highest infield fly-ball rates in the MLB, managing to get a popup in 16.2% of the balls hit in play, according to FanGraphs.com.
