Lowrie Sent to the DL

Word is coming out that the Red Sox have put their starting short stop, Jed Lowrie on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left wrist. The adjusting roster move is to call up infiedler Gil Velazques from Triple-A.

I'm actually almost happy to hear this. Lowrie started the year going 1 for 18 with eight strikeouts.....I was almost hoping something was wrong. His bat looked slow and swing out of sorts....hopefully some time off will allow him to get healthy and figure it out. There doesn't seem to be too many details on this yet, but we're assuming it's the same wrist which gave him problems down the stretch last year. Nick Green is likely to see multiple starts this week as Julio Lugo continues to work on rehabbing his knee.....hopefully Green can learn to get the bunt down while manning the starting position.

Meanwhile, here is the starting lineup for tonight's game.....obviously there is no Lowrie, but there is no Jacoby either with Rocco taking the lead off spot as a result of facing a lefty...

1. Rocco Baldelli, CF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. David Ortiz, DH
4. Kevin Youkilis, 1B
5. J.D. Drew, RF
6. Jason Bay, LF
7. Mike Lowell, 3B
8. Jason Varitek, C
9. Nick Green, SS

-- SP, Jon Lester....need a bounce-back performance from JL.

Go Sox.

I'm not sure what I'm more worried about right now, Lester, or our lack of a lineup.

D Vicino said... about Nomar now having a higher average, more homeruns and rbi than Ortiz after one swing of the bat off of Lester?

Still waiting for "our bats to come alive and everything start clicking"...I know it's early, but still, this is frustrating.
