Andrew Cashner, who was scheduled to start tonight’s game against the New York Mets, has been scratched with a stiff neck. A.J. Griffin, originally slated to start tomorrow, takes the ball today instead.

And of course, there’s no DH today, because we have to play by those silly N.L. rules. As a result, Mike Napoli is on the bench.

The lineup:

Choo — RF

Elvis — SS

Mazara — LF

Beltre — 3B

Odor — 2B

Gomez -- CF

Gallo -- 1B

Chirinos -- C

Griffin — P
