11:05 a.m.:  With a day game after a night game, John Farrell looked beyond his starters while filling out Friday’s lineup card. Among those in Boston’s lineup against Toronto are the organization’s top two prospects, Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr. The two are certainly at different points in their development — with Bradley making a bid for a big league roster spot out of camp and Bogaerts lined up for more time in the minors — but Friday marks a great opportunity for Red Sox fans to get a glimpse of the future. Bogaerts and Bradley aren’t the only prospects in Friday’s lineup, though. Bryce Brentz is also penciled in. He’ll play right field and bat eighth. Check out the rest of Friday’s lineups below. Red Sox Brock Holt, 2B Drew Sutton, 3B Jackie Bradley Jr., CF Ryan Lavarnway, C Lyle Overbay, 1B Mauro Gomez, DH Mike Carp, LF Bryce Brentz, RF Xander Bogaerts, SS Alfredo Aceves, P Blue Jays Jose Reyes, SS Emilio Bonifacio, 2B Melky Cabrera, LF Jose Bautista, RF Adam Lind, DH J.P. Arencibia, C Colby Rasmus, CF Mark DeRosa, 1B Maicer Izturis, 3B 8 a.m. ET: The revamped Blue Jays figure to be players in the American League East this season. On Friday, the Red Sox travel to Dunedin for one final spring training matchup with Toronto. Alfredo Aceves will get the start for Boston as the Sox continue to try and stretch him out with Franklin Morales sidelined for an indefinite period of time. The right-hander last pitched on Saturday, and he allowed two runs on six hits in 4 1/3 innings against the Rays. That outing, of course, was highlighted by Aceves plunking the final batter faced, leading to an on-field shouting match and even more questions about Aceves’ controversial behavior. Aceves has pitched 10 innings overall this spring, allowing five earned runs on 13 hits while striking out three and walking three. He figures to be sixth in Boston’s rotational pecking order, meaning he could be in line for some spot starts here and there while also pitching in a relief role. Jose De La Torre is scheduled to follow Aceves for the Red Sox, who earned a 6-1 victory over the Phillies on Thursday night behind another strong effort from John Lackey. De La Torre is returning to Sox camp after pitching for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic. He appeared in six of the team’s nine games, and allowed three runs and struck out 12 in 5 2/3 innings of relief while helping Puerto Rico reach the tournament finals. Friday’s first pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. ET, so be sure to stop by early and often for all things baseball.
