Xander Bogaerts will bat seventh and play shortstop in his major league debut tonight against the Giants.

On paper, the Sox lineup isn't their strongest, with David Ortiz sitting out (no DH in the NL park) and Mike Napoli still out. That leaves Mike Carp playing first and batting cleanup.

Here's the full lineup:

Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
Shane Victorino, RF
Dustin Pedroia, 2B
Mike Carp, 1B
Will Middlebrooks, 3B
Daniel Nava, LF
Xander Bogaerts, SS
David Ross, C
Jake Peavy, SP
