5:40 p.m.: Wednesday’s lineups are below. Red Sox (64-44) Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Shane Victorino, RF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Mike Napoli, 1B Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C Mike Carp, LF Stephen Drew, SS Brock Holt, 3B John Lackey, RHP (7-8, 3.19 ERA) Mariners (50-56) Brad Miller, SS Nick Franklin, 2B Kyle Seager, 3B Kendrys Morales, DH Raul Ibanez, LF Michael Morse, 1B Michael Saunders, RF Dustin Ackley, CF Humberto Quintero, C Hisashi Iwakuma, RHP (10-4, 2.87 ERA) 8 a.m. ET: Much of the focus Wednesday will be on the 4 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline. But the Red Sox also have a game to play. We won’t know for a few hours if the Red Sox will make any roster changes before Wednesday’s game, but they were busy late Tuesday night/early Wednesday morning. The Sox acquired starter Jake Peavy from the White Sox and reliever Brayan Villarreal from the Tigers as part of a three-team, seven-play deal. Boston relinquished Jose Iglesias and three minor leaguers to make it happen. Peavy should boost the Red Sox’ rotation, and he comes at a reasonable price. Iglesias has been excellent this year, but he has struggled offensively of late, and it could be a sign of things to come. None of the three prospects that Boston surrendered are considered elite at this point. Peavy won’t start Wednesday’s game, though. The ball will instead be handed to John Lackey, who is looking to bounce back from back-to-back losses. Lackey surrendered five runs on nine hits in 6 1/3 innings his last time out in Baltimore. Wednesday’s first pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. ET. Be sure to tune in on NESN, and keep it right here with NESN.com’s live blog. Filed under: Boston Red Sox, Headlines, Live Blog, Ricky Doyle
