Lowell activated, will start at 1B; Youk to DL

At long last, Mike Lowell has been activated by the Red Sox and will make the start at first base in Tuesday night's matchup with the Indians. In a corresponding move, Kevin Youkilis was put on the 15-day disabled list after injuring his hand in at-bat during Monday's loss.

Below is the final draft of the Sox starting lineup:




Scutaro, 6

McDonald, 8

Martinez, 2

Ortiz, DH

Beltre, 5

Lowell, 3

Ellsbury goes 3-for-5 in Pawtucket

Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, back in Triple-A Pawtucket for a third rehab game, went 3-for-5 with a pair of singles (one to left, one to right), a double, a run scored and an RBI. He added a pair of lineouts as the designated hitter for the PawSox.


In three games with the PawSox, he is 7-for-14 (.500). The Red Sox said yesterday that Ellsbury would play in Pawtucket on Tuesday and then be re-evaluated on Wednesday to determine what the appropriate next step would be in his return from his non-displaced rib fractures.

Farrell on D&H: Pap still one of MLB's best

Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell joined the Dale & Holley show Tuesday afternoon and talked about the much-maligned Boston bullpen. Farrell remains confident that the existing group of relievers can do what's needed to get the Sox back into the AL East race. "Right now, we feel like this is the group that will close the 6 1/2-game game that we're staring at," he said.


As for closer Jonathan Papelbon, who blew a save Sunday for the fifth time this season, Farrell said: "While it's easy to point to some of the miscues that might have been there, he's still one of the top three or four closers in the game, and I'd hate to see where we'd be without him."


Speaking about Tuesday's night's starter, Josh Beckett, Farrell said the team brought him along slowly and now has no reason to be concerned about his back. "When he goes to the mound, we look at him as if the back issue wasn't there...
