Brantley is not in the lineup Friday against Boston, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Brantley hits the bench after making 13 straight starts. George Springer returns from his back injury in right field, pushing Josh Reddick to left, though Brantley should continue to play a regular role as the Astros use the designated hitter spot to make room for their outfield depth.
