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.”
