Mike Lowell told Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe that his left knee “felt great compared to yesterday.” Lowell was forced to leave Friday’s game after fouling a ball off his leg in his first at-bat.
“The swelling under the knee cap is annoying and I can’t flex my quad
(all the way), but it’s (swelling) a quarter of what it was yesterday.”
Even though the knee is improving, Lowell acknowledged that he will likely miss two three days before getting clearance to play again, greatly diminishing the already slim chance that the Red Sox will be able to trade him before the end of spring training.
Still, Lowell doesn’t see the disabled list as a possibility to start the season, saying “I don’t want to be on a phantom DL.” With just 10 at-bats this spring, it might not be so phantom.
