Dustin Pedroia is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Wednesday.

Pedroia will get the afternoon off on Wednesday in favor of Brock Holt, who will slide over from third base to give Kelly Johnson a rare start at the hot corner. This is nothing more than an extra day off for the Red Sox second baseman so expect ti see him back in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Astros. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
