Jones and Reynolds return to lineup (Adams update)

Adam Jones is starting in center field tonight and Mark Reynolds is back at first base. The lineup looks fairly normal again.

Jones hasn’t started since Sept. 9 because of a sprained right thumb.

J.J. Hardy SS
Nick Markakis RF
Vladimir Guerrero DH
Matt Wieters C
Adam Jones CF
Mark Reynolds 1B
Chris Davis 3B
Nolan Reimold LF

Rick VandenHurk RHP

VandenHurk hasn’t pitched since Sept. 10 in Toronto, when he allowed three runs and three hits, including two homers, and walked two batters in 2 1/3 innings.

Adrian Gonzalez is 2-for-3 with a double and home run against VandenHurk.

For the Red Sox:
Ellsbury CF
Pedroia 2B
Gonzalez 1B
Ortiz DH
Reddick RF
Crawford LF
Scutaro SS
Saltalamacchia C
Aviles 3B

Bedard LHP

Bedard has a 2.70 ERA in three career starts against his former team spanning 16 2/3 innings.

Guerrero is 6-for-16 with a double and home run against Bedard. Jones is 4-for-8.

Update: Manager Buck Showalter told reporters in Boston that second baseman Ryan Adams is sidelined with a sports hernia that might require surgery. Adams went 2-for-4 last night in his first start since Sept. 13.
