TORONTO -- Dustin Pedroia was not in the Red Sox lineup on Thursday, and manager John Farrell said it was a scheduled day off.

Pedroia broke an 0-for-17 skid with a first-inning single Wednesday night, but is batting just .083 (2 for 24) since the All-Star break.

Brock Holt, who sat Wednesday, is playing second base, which will make him the first Sox player ever to start games at seven different positions (all except pitcher and catcher).
