As manager Aaron Boone told reporters on Thursday, Josh Donaldson will lead off and play third, followed by Aaron Judge, Anthony Rizzo, and Giancarlo Stanton, who will be the DH. DJ LeMahieu will start at second base, Joey Gallo in left field, and Aaron Hicks in center field.

Hicks gets the start after missing nearly all of last season after tearing a tendon sheath in his wrist. He is just 3-for-16 with three strikeouts in his career against Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi.

Kyle Higashioka and Isiah Kiner-Falefa round out the order.
