10:45 a.m.: The Sox enter Monday’s game against the O’s on the heels of a 7-6 victory over the Phillies on Sunday. Jackie Bradley Jr. had a home run and four RBIs in that contest to power Boston’s 14-hit barrage, but he’ll be out of the lineup when the action kicks off on Monday afternoon. The outfield will instead feature Jonny Gomes, Shane Victorino and Ryan Sweeney from left to right, respectively. One player to keep an eye on is Lyle Overbay. The veteran first baseman has the option of opting out of his contract on Tuesday, although there’s still a good chance he could crack Boston’s Opening Day roster given the club’s need for a backup first baseman. Overbay and Mike Carp have been battling for playing time in that role throughout the spring. Check out Monday’s lineups below. Red Sox Shane Victorino, CF Jonny Gomes, LF Mike Napoli, DH Will Middlebrooks, 3B Lyle Overbay, 1B Ryan Sweeney, RF Jose Iglesias, SS Brock Holt, 2B Christian Vazquez, C Graham Godfrey, P Orioles Brian Roberts, 2B Nate McLouth, LF Adam Jones, CF Matt Wieters, C Chris Davis, 1B J.J. Hardy, SS Wilson Betemit, DH Manny Machado, 3B Ryan Flaherty, RF T.J. McFarland, P 8 a.m.ET: In exactly one week, the Red Sox will be gearing up for their regular-season opener against the Yankees. There are still some questions to be answered between now and then, though, and Monday’s game against the Orioles will offer another chance for some clarification. Graham Godfrey will start on the mound for the Red Sox, marking his first appearance of the spring. He was acquired from Oakland in exchange for pitcher Sandy Rosario back in December after spending the majority of his 2012 season with Triple-A Sacramento. Godfrey is scheduled to be followed by Clayton Mortensen, Jose De La Torre and Anthony Carter. Monday’s game is expected to start up at 1:05 p.m. ET, so be sure to keep it right here for all of your hardball needs.
