FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox manager John Farrell posted his pitching alignment for Thursday's college doubleheader against Northeastern University and Boston College.
First out of the gate against Northeastern? Newly acquired closer Joel Hanrahan. Just like all the other pitchers Farrell will deploy that day, Hanrahan will go one inning.
Daniel Bard, Andrew Miller, Alex Wilson, Clayton Mortensen, Pedro Beato and Chris Carpenter are also scheduled to pitch against Northeastern. Koji Uehara will start against Boston College, and he'll be followed by Andrew Bailey.
The Red Sox play their first Grapefruit League game on Saturday at home against the Rays.
