Lowell in limbo: Still no update on roster status
|07.31.10 at 9:00 pm ET|
Following his team’s 5-4 victory over the Tigers on Saturday, Red Sox manager Terry Francona met with corner infielder Mike Lowell and general manager Theo Epstein to discuss the status of the 2007 World Series MVP.
Lowell has been on the disabled list since June 24 with a right hip strain. He recently concluded a rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket in which he hit .500 with four homers in 22 at-bats. The Sox tried unsuccessfully to deal him at the trade deadline, but with no match to be had, the 36-year-old’s role on the club is murky. That said, Francona said that the team was not yet ready to announce a roster move involving Lowell.
“It’s certainly something that needs to be addressed,” said Francona. “We’ll probably talk about that a little bit more.”
