Dustin Pedroia gets a day off

BALTIMORE — A few Red Sox notes:

• Dustin Pedroia is getting a day off, his first of the season. With the team off on Monday, he’ll get two full days to rest. Pedroia is 3 of his last 19 and committed his first error of the season on Saturday.

• Jose Iglesias will be making his first start at second base. He does have four innings there.

• RHP Pedro Beato was added to the 40-man roster and called up from Pawtucket. Rubby De Rosa was sent back and will start on Monday for Pawtucket. The Sox wanted to keep him on his routine.


• If Clay Buchholz doesn’t throw in the bullpen on Tuesday, he’s almost surely headed for the disabled list. If he does, he could start Saturday in Detroit. If Buchholz can’t go, that Saturday starter could be De La Rosa or Allen Webster.

• Alfredo Aceves and Felix Doubront will start the doubleheader (order to be determined) with Ryan Dempster on Wednesday. Salty will catch Aceves.

• No real update on Mike Napoli. He’s just sick it seems like. The Sox are hoping he can avoid the disabled list.
