The Red Sox's rotation from now until the end of the season is beginning to take shape.

Manager Terry Francona said that Tim Wakefield, who threw a side session at Kauffman Stadium before Thursday's game and originally was slated to start Tuesday, has been pushed back to Wednesday against Toronto. Clay Buchholz, who faced the Royals on Thursday night, will take Wakefield's Tuesday spot on four days of rest.

Jon Lester, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Paul Byrd will start games this weekend at Yankee Stadium, with Josh Beckett taking his turn Monday against the Blue Jays at Fenway Park.
