Lowrie cleared to 'resume some activities' after 'mystery' illness

Mar 16, 2010, 12:43 PM EDT

Jed Lowrie has been sidelined for the past four days because of a so-called “mystery” illness that sapped his energy and accelerated his heart rate.
He underwent a stress test and various blood work yesterday and has apparently been cleared of anything serious, with Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reporting that he “could resume some activities today.”
“Hopefully what ends up happening is he was just sick and didn’t tolerate it real well,” manager Terry Francona said. “I don’t think you can be too careful.”
Between last year’s wrist problems and his current health issues things certainly haven’t been easy for Lowrie, but he remains the heavy favorite to be the Red Sox’s primary backup infielder.

    Prions again. Damned little things are everywhere.

    Probably caught whatever Joe Reyes has…

    My guess is Lowrie will start the season in Pawtucket and Billy Hall will be the utility guy. This is a crucial season for Jed who needs to step up or he will become a suspect, no longer a prospect.
