Guillermo Heredia will get his first start in the big leagues on Monday night, hitting leadoff and playing left field in the Mariners’ series opener against fellow Wild Card contender Boston.

Heredia, who was called up Saturday, came off the bench in each of the Mariners’ three games in Chicago over the weekend but had yet to get a start for Seattle.

On the mound will be James Paxton for the M’s against Red Sox lefty Eduardo Rodriguez in the 7:10 game, which will be live on 710 ESPN Seattle after the pregame show at 6.
