BOSTON — Trevor Story is not in the Boston Red Sox lineup Sunday vs. the Tampa Bay Rays. Christian Arroyo will play second base.
The Red Sox will try to sweep their three-game series against Tampa. First pitch is at 1:35 p.m. here at Fenway Park.
It is a scheduled day off for Story who went 1-for-3 in his return from the injured list Saturday.
The Red Sox are taking it slow with the second baseman because his rehab assignment was only two games. He’s expected to play Monday in Minnesota.
Righty Nick Pivetta (9-9, 4.24 ERA) will start for Boston opposite Rays righty Corey Kluber (8-7, 4.20 ERA).
