The Boston Herald reports, David Ortiz who started at first base Tuesday night will not be in Wednesday's starting lineup.
With the Red Sox playing in a National League ballpark, the team will have to deploy Ortiz at first base if they want him in the starting lineup, but will get the day off on Wednesday despite a right-handed pitcher on the mound for the Cardinals.
