Lowrie goes 1-for-2 (2 BBs) for Lowell

In his first game in roughly four months, Red Sox infielder Jed Lowrie went 1-for-2 with a single and two walks for the Lowell Spinners of the Single-A Short-Season New York-Penn League in the first game of his rehab assignment. Lowrie batted third and served as the designated hitter for the Spinners.

 

Lowrie appeared in four games in spring training this year before being sidelined by mononucleosis. The 26-year-old was sidelined for most of the 2009 season after undergoing surgery to remove a bone in his left wrist in April. He played in 32 games in the majors for the Sox, hitting .147 with a .211 OBP and .265 slugging mark.

Report: Sheed could change mind
By: DJ Bean

According to a report on NBA.com, a source has indicated a "possibility" of Celtics forward Rasheed Wallace changing his mind regarding retirement after both coach Doc Rivers and captain Paul Pierce returned to the team.

 

Should Wallace follow through with his retirement, his contract would be a valuable commodity on the trade market. His deal still has two seasons and $12 million dollars on it. Wallace just finished his 15th NBA season, his first in Boston.

Wheeler files for arbitration
By: DJ Bean

Agent Matt Keator confirmed to WEEI.com that Bruins left wing Blake Wheeler filed for arbitration before Monday’s 5 p.m. deadline. The Boston Globe was the first to report the story.

 

Defenseman Mark Stuart, the other Bruin eligible for arbitration, did not file, as Keator, who represents both players, indicated the two sides felt they were close enough to reaching a one-year deal that they didn’t feel it was necessary.

 

Wheeler had 38 points this past season for the Bruins, scoring 18 goals while playing in all 82 games. Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli had said last week that the team hoped neither player would file.
