Red Sox infielder Jed Lowrie, who has missed the entire season to date while recovering from mononucleosis, will join the major league club in Oakland after a rehab assignment with Single-A Lowell and Triple-A Pawtucket, according to reports out of Oakland. Lowrie is expected to be activated later this week.
In 10 games between the two levels on his rehab assignment, Lowrie hit .367 with a .447 OBP, .600 slugging mark, one homer and nine runs batted in. Five of his 11 hits went for extra bases. He played second, short, third and DH during his rehab assignment.
Lowrie suggested during his rehab assignment that he is "an asset to [the Red Sox]." Now, he is on the cusp of having the opportunity to demonstrate that point at the major league level.

Red Sox starter Tim Wakefield, at 43 years, 352 days, would become the oldest pitcher in franchise history to win a game should he claim a victory in Oakland on Tuesday night. The knuckleballer would surpass the record established by Dennis Eckersley, who claimed a victory in relief at 43 years, 349 days on Sept. 17, 1998.
Wakefield (3-8, 5.65) will get the ball on Tuesday night, but with Clay Buchholz (Wednesday) and Josh Beckett (Friday) scheduled to return to the rotation in the coming days, Wakefield is likely to lose his regular turn in the rotation following Tuesday's outing.

Red Sox catcher Gustavo Molina, who was designated for assignment on Sunday, cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Pawtucket. Molina appeared in four games (all Sox losses), going 1-for-7. He was designated in order to clear a major league roster spot for Dusty Brown. Molina has appeared in 21 games with the PawSox this year, hitting .239/.292/.418/.710 with three homers in 21 games.
Bill Ingram of Hoops World has tweeted that free agent shooting guard Larry Hughes has narrowed his list of teams down to the Lakers, Heat, Celtics and Bobcats. Hughes finished the 2009-10 season with Charlotte.
The eighth overall pick in the 1998 NBA draft, Hughes has played for the 76ers, Warriors, Wizards, Cavaliers, Bulls, Knicks and Bobcats over his 12-year career. He has averaged 14.2 points, 3.2 assists and 4.2 rebounds.
Hughes would seemingly fill the void that was created when Tony Allen departed for Memphis earlier this month.
