Youk sent to specialist

Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis is out of the lineup tonight. Youkilis, who was hit under the right eye by a warmup toss before the fifth inning Monday night, still has swelling and water in the eye, and saw an eye specialist today.

Manager Terry Francona said the team is shooting for a return tomorrow for Youkilis.

Francona also said there was no word on Coco Crisp’s appeal of his seven-game suspension for the June 5 brawl with the Rays.
