The lineups for the Blue Jays-Red Sox game are out and Mookie Betts remains out of Boston’s lineup Tuesday against the Blue Jays, missing his third straight start.

Betts continues to nurse some tightness in his left side. It’s still not considered serious — and the Red Sox, overall, are humming along just fine — so they can afford to give him some time.

In the meantime, Andrew Benintendi will hit leadoff again, where he has raked the past couple of games. Brock Holt will make the start in right field.
