Coco gets root canal

Coco Crisp not only is dealing with his tender groin muscles, but the center fielder is in line for a root canal today. Someone can’t catch a break, it seems.

Other than that, Julio Lugo looks destined for the lineup tomorrow, though the team will leave Argenis Diaz back from the trip to Fort Lauderdale just in case Lugo can’t go.

With that…the Red Sox lineup for today’s game against the Dodgers (1 p.m., on ESPN):

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. David Ortiz, DH
4. Manny Ramirez, LF
5. Mike Lowell, 3B
6. Sean Casey, 1B
7. Jed Lowrie, SS
8. Brandon Moss, RF
9. Doug Mirabelli, C

Tim Wakefield, P
