J.D., Drew has been scratched from the Sox lineup and replaced in right field by Jeremy Hermida. Drew came in today and said his hamstring felt fine, but after warmups didn’t feel quite as good.
The Red Sox had no intention of placing Drew on the disabled list, but we’ll see if this setback changes their thinking at all. Hermida will bat seventh and Jed Lowrie will bat in Drew’;s No. 2 spot.
