Lowell to DL; Youk at hot corner
Mike Lowell was examined at Mass. General and shortly thereafter, placed on the DL with a left thumb sprain. It didn’t help matters that Alex Cora felt a twinge in his elbow during warmups.

The ball sure did find Youk early tonight and he made every play. Also, it says something about Sean Casey that he raked that single Wednesday about five seconds after being told he was coming into the game.
Timlin to be activated tomorrow or later tonight. Who will go? Corey, Lopez or Aardsma?
Here is tonight’s lineup:
