Red Sox World Series lineup: J.D. Martinez's outfield status unclear for Game 3; Mookie Betts won't start at second
Prior to Game 3, Red Sox manager Alex Cora provided updates on his outfielders
Cora said that Betts will not start at second base for Game 3 in Los Angeles. Although Cora confirmed that Betts -- who made 14 starts at second in 2014 -- would not be starting at second base, he didn't rule out Betts playing there at some point in the game.
"No, he's not playing second base," Cora told a reporter when asked if Betts was going to play at second for Game 3. "Well, he's not starting at second base."
Martinez stayed in his usual spot as the Red Sox's designated hitter for Game 2. But now with the series moving to a National League ballpark,
"He [Martinez] felt better today," said Cora. "He'll get treatment tomorrow morning and then we'll make a decision."
First pitch for Game 3 of the World Series is at 8:09 p.m. ET Friday night in Los Angeles.
