Worth noting

• Farrell said Brock Holt will likely play shortstop Wednesday while Stephen Drew gets a day off against White Sox left-hander Chris Sale. It will be the sixth different position Holt has played this season.

• Facing a lefty in John Danks on Tuesday night, Farrell gave righty David Ross the start in place of A.J. Pierzynski. Mookie Betts played center instead of lefty Jackie Bradley Jr., as well. The Red Sox will face three lefties in Danks, Sale and Jose Quintana during the rest of the series against the White Sox.

Farrell said he expects to have Bradley, who is 7-for-16 in his last five games, back in the lineup Wednesday and likely every day through the weekend prior to the All-Star break.
