Red Sox-Rays Game 1 lineups: Chavis at 1B, Martinez out, Bennintendi sits


The Red Sox play two against the Rays today (1:05 p.m. and 6:05 p.m.) at Fenway Park and will be without first baseman Mitch Moreland for at least another 10 days after he was placed on the injured list with a quad injury just a day after returning from the IL. J.D. Martinez (back spasms) is still out and Andrew Benintendi sits against a lefty.

Martinez left the game in Kansas City Thursday with back spasms. Christian Vazquez serves as the DH and Sandy Leon will catch right-hander Josh Smith, up from Triple-A Pawtucket to make the spot start.
