Derek Lowe will throw to test injury he won't admit to having

Aug 31, 2010, 12:17 PM EDT

Derek Lowe still hasn’t actually admitted to having an injury, but Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that he “had ice wrapped around his right elbow” in the clubhouse yesterday and is scheduled to “test” the not-yet-admitted-to injury by throwing today.
Lowe repeatedly shook his right arm between pitches during Sunday’s season-worst start against the Marlins, but declined to speak about a potential injury when asked afterward by reporters.
“Derek is a horse,” general manager Frank Wren told Bowman. “At this point of the season, you’re not going to find anybody who is 100 percent. I think he’ll be fine.”
