David Ortiz is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Wednesday.
Ortiz made a rare start at first base in Tuesday's win over the Reds, but will take a seat in favor of Mike Napoli in Wednesday afternoon's contest. The Red Sox move on to Houston following the game, meaning they will be back in an American League ballpark meaning Ortiz will be back in his usual role on Thursday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
John Brown is practicing Thursday.
Brown should be a full-go this week and will see a fair share of the targets regardless of Michael Floyd's status. Obviously he'll see more if Floyd is out, but even if he's in, Brown should have ample opportunities this week. Analysis: Howard Bender
