Red Sox flip-flop Peavy, Doubront

The Red Sox made a change Tuesday, flip-flopping Jake Peavy and Felix Doubront in the rotation. Peavy will now start tonight’s series opener in Minnesota and Doubront will pitch Wednesday.

The switch means the right-handed Peavy will face the Tigers next Sunday night at Fenway instead of the southpaw Doubront. The Tigers are hitting an AL-best .293 against lefties. For the record, they also lead the AL in batting average against righties (.274).

Here is tonight’s Red Sox lineup:

1. Dustin Pedroia, 2B

2. Shane Victorino, RF

3. David Ortiz, DH

4. Mike Napoli, 1B

5. Grady Sizemore, LF

6. A.J. Pierzynski, C

7. Xander Bogaerts, SS

8. Will Middlebrooks, 3B

9. Jackie Bradley Jr., CF

SP -- Jake Peavy, RHP
