Hanser Alberto leading off for Orioles on Thursday

Baltimore Orioles infielder Hanser Alberto is in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against left-hander Martin Perez and the Boston Red Sox.

What It Means:

Alberto will start on second base and lead off the order following a breather. Pat Valaika will shift to first base and Ryan Mountcastle will move out to left field in place of D.J. Stewart. Cedric Mullins will drop to the bottom of the order.
