According to a team spokesperson, Red Sox third baseman Mike Lowell underwent successful surgery Wednesday on a torn radial collateral ligament in his right thumb in Arizona. Dr. Donald Sheridan, who also performed operations on Sox’ infielders Jed Lowrie and Dustin Pedroia, performed the surgery. According to the Boston Globe, it was discovered there was a 95 percent tear in the ligament. Lowell told WEEI.com on Dec. 21 that he is expected to be able to start throwing six weeks from the time of the surgery, which would be Feb. 10, with the clearance for hitting coming two weeks later.
