Mike Lowell is done rehabbing, but won't rejoin Sox tonight

Jul 30, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

UPDATE: Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe updates Lowell’s status, saying he will not be activated from the DL tonight.
Mike Lowell is finished rehabbing in the minors after going 11-for-22 (.500) with four homers, four doubles, and 10 RBIs in five games at Triple-A, and Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports that he could be activated from the disabled list as soon as tonight.
Lowell still doesn’t have much of a role to return to, however, and the Red Sox no doubt remain open to trading him if he can show enough in limited action to convince another contender he’s capable of contributing down the stretch.

    David Ortiz has a sub-.600 OPS against lefties this year. Nope, I can’t see any reason why the Red Sox would need Lowell on their roster.

    Just guy went bezerk in his rehab assignment. Why not eat some of his salary (I think he’s at $10mil or $11mil a season, so they’d probably have to eat $3mil or $4mil) and flip him for a prospect?
