3:55 p.m. ET: The Red Sox kicked off their spring training schedule on Thursday with a victory over Northeastern, but they’re not done for the day just yet. Next up for the Sox is a clash with Boston College at 4 p.m. ET. While the Red Sox’ lineup for the first game included a number of regulars, Boston’s lineup against BC will consist entirely of minor leaguers. That doesn’t mean it won’t be an interesting game, though, as some of the organization’s top prospects, including Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr., will be in action. Bogaerts, who is coming up through the system as a shortstop, will play third base against the Eagles. It’s a position many envision him eventually switching to, but him playing there against BC could just be to get him some more practice at the position before he mans the hot corner for Team Netherlands during the upcoming World Baseball Classic. Just like the Red Sox did against Northeastern, they’ll roll out a new reliever to start Thursday’s contest against BC. Koji Uehara will get the nod first for the Sox in the seven-inning affair. The Red Sox’ lineup is below. Justin Henry, RF Brock Holt, SS Jackie Bradley Jr., CF Mauro Gomez, 1B Jeremy Hazelbaker, LF Xander Bogaerts, 3B Jonathan Diaz, 2B Daniel Butler, C David Renfroe, DH Koji Uehara, P Also scheduled to pitch: Andrew Bailey, Oscar Villarreal, Terry Doyle, Jose De La Torre, Junichi Tazawa Click here to read NESN.com’s Red Sox-Northeastern live blog >>
