ARLINGTON, Texas -- Adam LaRoche will join the Red Sox in Boston on Friday, and at that point the Sox will make their corresponding roster move to make room for their new first baseman. Obviously this means LaRoche will not be in the lineup for the Sox tonight against the Rangers.

Tonight's Red Sox lineup:

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
4. David Ortiz, DH
5. Jason Bay, LF
6. J.D. Drew, RF
7. Mark Kotsay, 1B
8. Jason Varitek, C
9. Nick Green, SS
-- Clay Buchholz, SP

No Rangers lineup yet, but Vicente Padilla, who was scheduled to start for Texas, was scratched with flu-like symptoms. Dustin Nippert, who has made two relief appearances since being removed from the starting rotatiion, will start in his place.
