It's an intriguing pitching matchup Tuesday, when John Lackey will make his Angel Stadium debut as a member of the Boston Red Sox and oppose the man who took over as the Angels ace, Jered Weaver. Lackey dominated the Angels on May 5 at Fenway Park.

The other matchups for that series are Joel Pineiro against Clay Buchholz (Monday) and Joe Saunders vs. Josh Beckett.

Also, manager Mike Scioscia confirmed that Trevor Bell will pitch Sunday in Texas in place of Sean O'Sullivan, who was traded to the Kansas City Royals in the deal for Alberto Callaspo. The Angels likely will need to recall a reliever from Triple-A, since Bell was a reliever earlier this season and likely will be held under 100 pitches.
