Boston Red Sox Mike Lowell Headed to DL…

According to the Boston Globe, the Boston Red Sox have put third baseman Mike Lowell on the 15-Day DL with a right hip strain. The trip to the DL is retroactive to June 28.

Lowell was hitting .282 with 10 HR’s, 41 RBI, and was playing his usual stellar defense for the Red Sox, so this will hurt the first-place Red Sox.

I don’t expect Theo Epstein to panic and make a trade to replace Lowell. That is just not his style. For the time being, the Red Sox will use Kevin Youkilis at third and use a combination of the recalled Jeff Bailey and the veteran Mark Kotsay at first.
