Lowell resolution not expected Monday

According to a baseball source, a resolution of the Mike Lowell situation is not expected Monday, but in the next day or two, some determination about how to proceed with the corner infielder seems likely.

 

The Red Sox have been trying to trade Lowell since last winter, most notably in the trade with the Rangers that fell apart due to concerns with the 36-year-old’s right hip. While the team initially envisioned a role for Lowell this year, chiefly as a right-handed complement to David Ortiz and as a backup to Adrian Beltre and Kevin Youkilis, the re-emergence of Ortiz as a lineup force limited the role of the 2007 World Series MVP.

 

Lowell had become a seldom-used bench option by late-June, when he went on the disabled list due to concerns about his hip. At the time, while there were health concerns about his hip, there was also a general discomfort on the part of both the player and the team about Lowell’s...

Ellsbury to play again in Pawtucket Tuesday

According to a baseball source, Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury is getting very close to activation, but it will be at least a couple more days before he rejoins the Red Sox roster. He will play at least one more rehab game with Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday and then the Red Sox will re-evaluate him. Ellsbury went 2-for-5 on Sunday, and is now 4-for-9 in two games for the PawSox. He has played just nine games for the Red Sox this year while recovering from five non-displaced rib fractures.

Patriots sign Owens, Butler

FOXBORO — The Patriots announced Monday morning they have signed wide receiver Rod Owens and tight end Carson Butler.

Owens, a 6-foot-1, 186-pound wide receiver, led Florida State with 61 catches for 729 yards and three touchdowns last season. A 23-year-old, he originally worked out for the Patriots in early June just after getting released by St. Louis.

Butler is a 6-foot-4, 260-pounder out of Michigan who is already on his sixth team — the 22-year old was signed by Green Bay out of college as a free agent, but has also been on the practice squad in Detroit, San Francisco and Cincinnati. He was cut by the Giants in June. In last year's training camp with the Lions, he he caught 4 passes for 59 yards and a touchdown in the preseason before he was cut and added to the practice squad.
