The Boston Red Sox place shortstop Julio Lugo on the 15-day disabled list with a left quad strain on Saturday.
Lugo was injured Friday night while running out an infield single in the ninth inning of Boston's 7-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles. Lugo began to limp as he approached first base, then dropped to ground shortly after hitting the bag.
The age of Lowrie has begun. We shall see how he fares, but it looks like he'll be getting a two week tryout here.
I think an infield of Lowell, Pedroia, Youk and Lowrie could set a record for doubles.
He had an MRI today and said the doctor told him it was torn; the team said it was a "severe strain." He is expected to be out 4-to-6 weeks and was in the team clubhouse with a large brace on his left leg.
So it looks like Lowrie's tryout might be a month. I just picked him up for my fantsy team - you might want to do the same...
