If everything goes according to plan, Mike Lowell will begin a rehab start on Thursday for Triple-A Pawtucket, after getting one more shot in his ailing right hip on Monday, Red Sox manager Terry Francona announced on Saturday.
Lowell has been on the disabled list since June 24 with a strained right hip. Francona said Lowell will likely start out getting his at-bats in as a designated hitter before moving on to the field.

Red Sox manager Terry Francona confirmed Saturday that Clay Buchholz will return and make his scheduled start on Wednesday against the Oakland A's.
Buchholz will be making his first start since tweaking his hamstring on June 26 in San Francisco. Buchholz pitched on Friday night for Triple-A Pawtucket and made it through successfully without pain, and fielded a liner back to him on the mound.

Dustin Brown was recalled on Saturday from Triple-A Pawtucket as the Red Sox have made the decision to fill their extra roster spot with another catcher. Brown had missed several weeks with an injured left thumb when a runner slid into him earlier in the season when he was playing with Pawtucket. Brown joins Kevin Cash and Gustavo Molina as active catchers on the club's 25-man roster and Brown will be available for Saturday night's game against Texas at Fenway Park.
The Red Sox also activated reliever Manny Delcarmen off the disabled list and the reliever will be available for tonight's game as well.
To make room, the team designated reliever Fernando Cabrera for assignment following Friday's game and optioned Friday's starter Felix Doubront back to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Louis Oosthuizen was able to put together another solid round at St. Andrews despite bogeying the first hole in his third round. The South African, who has never been in contention in a major, shot a 3-under 69 to maintain his lead on the Old Course over Paul Casey. Casey, who is attempting to snap Britain's 11-year drought at the Open, was the best player on the course Saturday as he put together a total of five birdies on the front nine alone. Tiger Woods shot a 73 for the second consecutive day and remains out of contention going into the fourth and final round. Click here to view the complete British Open leaderboard.
The Red Sox appear to have their work cut out for them as they must win a game started by Cliff Lee (8-4, 2.64 ERA) in order to avoid dropping three straight to the Rangers. Darnell McDonald will hit second and play left field, while John Lackey (9-5, 4.78) takes the hill for the Sox.
