 Lowell taken off playoff roster
posted 8 years ago

After playing in two of the first three games of the American League Division Series against the Angels, Lowell was removed from the Red Sox’ playoff roster last night and replaced by rookie infielder Gil Velazquez. Because Lowell was removed during the ALDS, he will not be eligible to play during the A.L. Championship Series. He would be available for the World Series if the Red Sox can advance that far in the postseason. The torn labrum in Lowell’s hip was clearly hindering his ability in the 5-4 loss to the Angels in Game Three, both at the plate and in the field. He was 0-for-4 with a walk in the game and was removed once he reached base in the 10th inning. Lowell was 0-for-8 with a walk and three strikeouts in his two games in the series. “Where it goes from here, we don’t know yet,” Red Sox manager Terry Francona said before the roster move with Lowell was disclosed. “He needs to be seen by the doctors. We’re going to try to get this figured out.” There were several tell-tale signs in Game Three that Lowell was badly hurting. He barely ran out a ground ball in the eighth inning and while he made several plays at third base, he was severely restricted in his lateral movements. During the eighth inning, Mark Teixeira grounded a hot one-hopper to Lowell’s left that he barely knocked down. The ball scooted into short left field and Teixeira reached base.
