Lowell to return

Mike Lowell finished out a 3-game series at Pawtucket over the weekend, going a combined 3-13 with 3 RBI over those games. He played third base once, and was the DH in the other two games. He is expected to return to the big league club for tomorrow’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

With Alex Cora returning from the DL in a few days, this probably means we’ll be saying goodbye to Jed Lowrie for now. Lowrie has been very good in a utility role, hitting .323/.371/.419 with 3 doubles and 5 RBI in 12 games. He’s shown good patience and an above-average ability to control the strike zone, for a 24-year old. He saw time at 2B, SS and 3B, and proved to be a solid player in the field as well. His presence really helped the Sox to pull through a lot of these April injuries and illnesses. He’ll be back this season, count on it.
