The game was postponed yesterday because of the search for a second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing.
David Ortiz is set to make his return for the Boston Red Sox following an eight-month layoff following an Achilles tendon injury last July 17. Ortiz was in the batting order to hit cleanup as the designated hitter today.
In other early starts the Blue Jays are home to the Yankees, Miami is at Cincinnati, the White Sox are entertaining the Twins, Washington is in New York to play the Mets, the Angels are home to Detroit and in the first of two games in Baltimore, the Dodgers are playing the Orioles.
Last night's game was rained out, forcing a split-doubleheader today with separate admissions.
