Jed Lowrie Placed On Disabled List

Red Sox shortstop hurt his shoulder on a collision with Carl Crawford, and the pain became worse after a swing in the first inning of Thursday's game against the Rays. After undergoing tests today, the Red Sox confirmed that Lowrie was heading to the disabled list. Drew Sutton will take his place on the active roster.

Lowrie started the season on fire, but since May 1, he has hit .219/.285/.313. He's had a rough time staying on the field in his career, going on the 60-day DL twice: once for mononucleosis, and once for a wrist injury.

Marco Scutaro should get the bulk of the starts in Lowrie's absence, and he's had a nice season so far as the Red Sox utility man, putting up a .278/.346/.361 line over 97 at-bats.

Sutton is a 28-year-old who has played for five different organizations in his career, and he had a .301/.380/.507 line down at triple-A. His full name is Stephen Drew Sutton, which was sort of a rude, teasing thing for his parents to do to a young shortstop.

Jed Lowrie Injury: Red Sox Shortstop May Be Headed To DL

On May 29, Red Sox shortstop Jed Lowrie and left fielder Carl Crawford collided while chasing a fly ball in Detroit. At the time, Lowrie said he had just a "dull ache" in his shoulder.

Last night in Tampa, according to the Boston Herald, Lowrie felt another pain in his shoulder while striking out in the first inning of the Red Sox' 4-2 win over the Rays.

Lowrie told manager Terry Francona he feared a subluxation of his shoulder, like the joint had “slipped out.” He left the game, lifted for Marco Scutaro, and was examined by the team’s athletic training staff. And although the shoulder never popped out of place, Lowrie will undergo further tests today to determine why he’s having persistent and increasing pain.

Lowrie told ESPN Boston reporter Gordon Edes, however, that it did feel like "his left shoulder felt like it had popped out of the socket". It's possible that Lowrie could be headed to the DL; the Boston Herald article indicated that Drew Sutton had been pulled early from a game for Triple-A Pawtucket. Moves like that often indicate a minor leaguer is headed to the majors.

Lowrie is hitting .270/.319/.403 in 196 at-bats this year for the Red Sox.
