Verdugo (back) is starting Thursday's game against the Astros, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Verdugo missed the last two games while battling back tightness, but he'll start in left field and bat second in Thursday's series finale. The 25-year-old has gone 7-for-20 with a home run, two doubles, four runs and two RBI across his last five games.
