Jed Lowrie was placed on the disabled list after feeling his left shoulder pop out of the socket last Thursday, but the Red Sox’s medical staff advised against surgery and a second opinion yesterday from Dr. Lewis Yocum agreed.

Lowrie originally injured his shoulder in a collision with Carl Crawford on May 29 and ineffectively played through the pain until things popped out of place last week, hitting just .128.

He’s been diagnosed with a merely strained shoulder, although Sean McAdam of CSN New England notes that even before the DL-inducing incident last week “Lowrie had been frustrated that … the shoulder was not getting much better.”

    You know those stem cells they pumped into Bartolo Colon? Can Jed get those injected into his, like, everything? He’s like the Nick Johnson of the middle infield.

      As a Yankees fan, thank you for bringing up the NJ word. Screw you!

    You know what’s awesome? Jed Lowrie when he’s not injured.

    I heard Jed got a 3rd opinion and the doctor said “your still an a-hole”
