Source: Sox agree to deal with Felipe Lopez

NEW YORK -- According to a major league source, utility infielder Felipe Lopez has agreed on a deal with the Red Sox after electing to reject a waiver claim by the San Diego Padres. News of Lopez' deal with the Sox was first reported by CBSSports.com.

 

Lopez had been placed on release waivers by the St. Louis Cardinals earlier in the week after hitting .231/.310/.340/.651 for the Cardinals with seven homers and 36 RBI in 109 games. The Padres claimed the versatile 30-year-old, but he instead rejected the claim in order to elect free agency and come to an agreement with the Sox.

 

Lopez could project as a Type B free agent, meaning that if the Sox were to offer him arbitration and he were to turn down that offer to sign elsewhere this offseason, he could net the team a compensatory draft pick.

Saltalamacchia done for season

NEW YORK -- Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said after Friday night's game that he has been shut down for the duration of the 2010 season due to a left thumb injury. The switch-hitting catcher, who was acquired from the Rangers at the July 31 trade deadline, said that he had been playing through discomfort that he incurred while playing for Texas' Triple-A affiliate in July.

 

The 25-year-old had intended to keep playing through the injury, but after experiencing what he described as "off and on" recurrence of discomfort, he told the Sox training staff and manager Terry Francona about the thumb. He said that even though he wanted to play, the team decided to shut him down for the rest of 2010.

 

"I told them I still wanted to play, but they felt it was better to just shut it down, see what’s wrong with it, make sure it’s nothing serious," said Saltalamacchia. "This offseason...

Lowrie's career night leads Sox past NY

NEW YORK -- Red Sox shortstop Jed Lowrie enjoyed a perfect night, going 4-for-4 with a three-run homer, three runs and three runs batted in, as he and the bottom of the Sox lineup led the Sox past Andy Pettitte and the Yankees in a 10-8 victory.

 

Lowrie drove a three-run homer to the opposite field in the top of the second inning against Pettitte, and from there, the Sox continued to add on. Bill Hall clubbed a three-run homer, Darnell McDonald added a two-run double and Marco Scutaro delivered a two-run single. Hence, on a night when the Nos. 2-6 hitters did not drive in a single run, the Sox still reached double figures in runs scored for just the fourth time since the All-Star break. That, in turn, allowed the Sox to withstand a barrage of six homers by New York.

 

Sox starter Josh Beckett was sharp early, allowing just one run through five innings, before fading in the sixth and seventh. He allowed three homers and...

Lowell leaves game after ball hits face

NEW YORK -- Red Sox first baseman Mike Lowell left Friday night's contest against the Yankees in the bottom of the sixth inning, one inning after a bad-hop grounder caromed off his right ear. He left the contest for what the Sox described as "precautionary reasons."

 

After the Curtis Granderson grounder with two outs in the fifth inning hit the side of his head, Lowell immediately sprawled on the dirt. Sox trainer Mike Reinold rushed to attend to him, but Lowell initially suggested that he was fine. He got up and remained in the game for the rest of the inning. However, he was replaced at first base by Lars Anderson for the bottom of the sixth inning.

 

The incident marred what had been a fine night for the 36-year-old, who was 1-for-2 with a single, walk and a season-high three runs scored.

 

UPDATE: After the game, Lowell declared that he felt "fine," and that he did not exhibit...
