Tuesday’s Red Sox-Orioles lineups: Ryan Hanigan catches, Travis Shaw at 3B

Ryan Hanigan gets another start at catcher and Travis Shaw starts at third against right-hander Dylan Bundy as the Red Sox look to make it two in a row over the Baltimore Orioles tonight at Fenway Park.

Hanigan made his first start since coming off the disabled list in a 3-2 loss Saturday in Toronto. The Red Sox are 21-7 in games he’s started this season.

The Red Sox routed Baltimore 12-2 Monday night in the opener of the three-game series to maintain their two-game lead over Toronto and drop the O’s three games back in the A.L. East.

Left-hander Drew Pomeranz (10-11, 3.01 ERA overall, 2-4, 3.97 with the Red Sox) is on the mound for Boston. Bundy (8-5, 3.82) moved into the rotation from the bullpen in July.

Strong Grapefruit League debut for Price

Strong Grapefruit League debut for Price

David Price's Grapefruit League debut was nearly perfect.

The Red Sox left-hander pitched four scoreless innings, allowing a hit and a walk and striking out five in a 7-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays in Fort Myers, Fla.

Price threw 55 pitches, 34 for strikes. He cruised through the first on nine pitches. He allowed the single and walk in the second.  

"It feels good. This is March 15 and I've never been able to have a four-pitch mix on March 15," Price told reporters after his start. "I've never been this far along in spring training even though I've only thrown in one game. I'm excited about that."

The Red Sox open March 29 at Tampa Bay, with Chris Sale likely to start. Price will likely pitch the second game of the season, March 30 at Tropicana Field.
