Jed Lowrie, Boof Bonser Hit the Disabled List

Shortstop Jed Lowrie and pitcher Boof Bonser will be on the disabled list to start the regular season:

Though neither move was a surprise, the Red Sox placed right-hander Boof Bonser (right groin strain) and shortstop Jed Lowrie (mononucleosis) on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday afternoon. The moves are retroactive to this past Friday, meaning both players would first be eligible to play on April 10.

With the two roster moves, the Red Sox have 33 players left in Major League camp. Daisuke Matsuzaka will go on the disabled list before Opening Day, so Boston has seven more cuts to make before Sunday's Opening Night game against the Yankees.

Lowrie most likely would have started the season in Pawtucket, so this isn't a big loss. The Sox will let him heal up and then get some at-bats in Pawtucket. Bonser, though, was in line for a bullpen spot. He's had a rough spring, but the Sox seem to like what he brings to the table.
