UPDATE: Alex Speier of WEEI.com reports that the Red Sox have placed Lowrie on the disabled list. Drew Sutton has been called up from Triple-A Pawtucket.

9:08 AM: Jed Lowrie, who has been bothered by a left shoulder injury since colliding with teammate Carl Crawford on May 29, could be headed for the disabled list after leaving last night’s game in the first inning.

According to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald, Lowrie told Red Sox manager Terry Francona that he feared the joint “slipped out” of his shoulder when he struck out against Rays lefty David Price with the bases loaded.

“I don’t really know what’s going on,” Lowrie said. “I just know what I felt. I certainly wasn’t this sore (previously).”

Lowrie underwent an MRI last week which revealed no structural damage in the shoulder. He is expected to undergo further testing today to determine why he continues to have discomfort.

While Lowrie was the best thing since sliced bread in April, he is batting just .128 since the collision with Crawford. He is hitless over his last 15 at-bats, which has pulled his batting average down to .270 for the year.

Drew Sutton was pulled after seven innings in last night’s game with Triple-A Pawtucket, which could be an indication that a roster move is on the way.

    No problem, .. the RS have Ironman Scutaro so Jed can stay on the DL as long as needed.
