Johnny Damon has been scratched from the Tigers’ lineup due to upper back spasms. He has been replaced by Brennan Boesch, will play out in right field and hit the No. 3 spot. Ryan Raburn, who was originally in the lineup to play right field, will move to left.
The injury means Damon will have to wait at least one more day to see if Red Sox fans will react differently to him now that he plays for the Tigers instead of the hated Yankees.
