Pillar will start in right field and bat eighth Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Pillar will draw his second start in a row while Michael Conforto gets a breather, but Pillar was on the bench for the proceeding three contests and looks poised to finish the season as New York's fourth outfielder. Following Brandon Nimmo's recent return from the injured list, the Mets are likely to roll out a starting outfield of Jeff McNeil, Nimmo and Conforto from left to right more often than not.
