Travis Shaw is not in Monday's lineup versus the Rays.
He's just getting a day of rest. Marco Hernandez will start in his place at third base and bat ninth against rookie lefty Blake Snell.
Clay Buchholz will make his next turn in the rotation Saturday versus the Angels.
The Red Sox have an off-day on Thursday, but they won't skip him in the rotation. Buchholz has allowed seven runs in 10 1/3 innings over two starts since returning to the rotation. He's not a fantasy option at this time.
Jedd Gyorko will start at first base Monday versus the Royals.
Gyorko will get the call with left-hander Danny Duffy on the hill for Kansas City. Matt Holliday will serve as the designated hitter while Brandon Moss gets a start in left field. Gyorko is batting eighth Monday.
Kolten Wong is not in Monday's lineup versus the Royals.
Not surprisingly, he's sitting against left-hander Danny Duffy. Tommy Pham will start in center field and bat ninth.
Brock Holt is still dealing with some symptoms from his concussion.
Holt began a minor league rehab assignment last week and concussion specialist Micky Collins thinks that he could be able to push through his current symptoms. The Red Sox expect Holt to be activated on Friday if all goes well.
