      Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Held out of Game 5 lineup

      Eduardo Nunez is not in the lineup for Game 5 of the World Series against the Dodgers on Sunday, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports.Nunez is 3-for-10 with a three-run homer in the World Series, but even with a lefty on the bump for Los Angeles, he'll head to the bench for a night off. Perhaps his nagging injuries are in play for his absence, though they likely aren't a big issue given the gravity of the situation and the fact that he started in Game 4. Rafael Devers will start at third base in his place.

      Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Remains out Friday

      Eduardo Nunez is not in the lineup for Game 3 of the World Series against the Dodgers on Friday, Jason Mastrodonato of The Boston Herald reports.Nunez has yet to start a game in this year's Fall Classic as Rafael Devers continues to get the nod at third base. With right-hander Walker Buehler on the mound for Los Angeles, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see Devers remain in the lineup. There's a chance Nunez will draw a start Saturday with southpaw Rich Hill set to pitch.

Ryu's reverse splits likely had some impact on manager Alex Cora's decision to keep Devers in the lineup.
