Mike Lowell's Injured Thumb May Derail Potential Trade

The on-again, off-again Mike Lowell trade between the Red Sox and Rangers is off again, this time due to Lowell’s health. SBN’s MLB Daily Dish passes along a Peter Gammons report that Lowell may require surgery on his right thumb, which has once again put the potential trade between the Red Sox and Rangers in jeopoardy.

If Lowell does undergo surgery, the Rangers will reportedly pursue Garrett Atkins to play third base instead. The Red Sox, meanwhile, might have to put the rest of their hot stove plans on hold. That could mean no Adrian Gonzalez, at least not until mid-season.
