David Ortiz has brought his mitt to Philadelphia -- he's starting at first base tonight while Kevin Youkilis shifts over to third and Mike Lowell gets the night off against Phillies righthander Joe Blanton.

Also, Jacoby Ellsbury is back in the Red Sox lineup tonight and batting seventh. He missed the three-game Yankees series with a strained right shoulder.
