In case you're wondering why the heck Jed Lowrie isn't back yet: His wrist appears to be fine and his knee is mostly healed from the pitch that hit him a couple of weeks ago. The key now is getting at-bats. He tried to play at Triple-A Pawtucket and was rained out on back-to-back nights.
He was activated today from the 60-day disabled list and optioned to Single-A Lowell -- his call-up, though, will depend less on his health than on how his swing feels.
After playing for Double-A Portland and going 3-for-5 with a double on Monday, he left the SeaDogs to join Single-A Lowell to have a better chance at playing today. He then doubled in the bottom of the first.
