Lowrie on dl

Postby tantrix1969 » Mon Apr 13, 2009 9:45 pm

Just noticed this on Yahoo,and wouldn't you know it I left him in my weekly changed lineup....... :~(


Mon, Apr 13

The Red Sox placed Lowrie (wrist) on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a sprained left wrist, reports the Boston Herald.

Recommendation: There had been no previous indications that Lowrie had been injured. His rough start to the year could potentially be attributed to his wrist. Either way, Lowrie will sit for two weeks as Boston recalled Gil Velazquez from Triple-A Pawtucket.

According to the Boston Globe, it's the same location as the injury that bothered him last year and it's been bothering him this season, he just hasn't said anything until now.
Likely explaining Lowrie's 1-for-18 start to the season with eight strikeouts, the problem is in approximately the same area as the sprain and small non-displaced fracture from last season, discovered when Lowrie had an MRI after the season.

"The only thing we have right now is he was sent back for a bunch of tests to try to be a little more conclusive on what's going on," manager Terry Francona said before last night's game against the Athletics. "He showed up yesterday and said it was bothering him and I think the more we started talking to him and pushing a little bit, we realized that we needed to get this thing checked out.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Per the Boston Globe, Lowrie is to see a specialist on what to do about his wrist. The options are cortisone shots or one of two surgeries. If he went with the more drastic of the two surgeries, he'd be done for the year.

Not to steal from other forums, but a poster on SOSH (Sons of Sam Horn, a Red Sox site) who is apparently an orthopedist opined that the shots wouldn't do anything, the less drastic surgery was chancy if it would work, and the last surgery would put Lowrie out for the year (which basically just reinforced, but expanded a little on, the news from the Globe).

The upshot seems to be that at the very minimum, Lowrie will be done for a couple of weeks by which time Lugo should be back. So in redraft leagues, Lowrie would be a safe person to cut at this point in time.

Lowrie had surgery and will be expected to be able to start swinging a bat in about 6 weeks, per the Boston Globe.
