Notes: Salazar has struggled so far this season and isn't getting an favors having to face Shields, one of the best pitchers in the division. Two things to look for: his velocity, which according to is down to 93.6 mph from 95.9 last year; and manager Terry Francona said he's looking for Salazar to attack hitters today. 

Santana is back in the lineup and at third base after getting the day off yesterday. Chisenhall is back to the No. 9 spot in the lineup. After his two errors yesterday, Chisenhall was out on the field early today taking grounders.
