Lineups: Lowell out

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Mike Lowell (partially torn labrum in his right hip) gets the night off after aggravating his hip injury coming in on a grounder to third last night. The Red Sox are going to send the film of a previously performed MRI on Lowell to two different specialists.

Kevin Youkilis will move to third base tonight to take Lowell’s place. Sean Casey gets the start at first.

In other news, pitcher Bartolo Colon has a personal matter to take care of in the Dominican, and did not throw a side session today. He will rejoin the team in Toronto on Friday.
