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.
The Celtics dropped their opener of its 2010 summer league, 87-82, to the Oklahoma City Thunder Monday in Orlando. The Celtics led by 15 points at the end of the first quarter and nine at the end of the third, but were unable to hold on as the Thunder outscored Boston by a 27-12 spread in the final 12 minutes.
Luke Harangody, the Celtics second-round pick in 2010, topped Boston scorers with 23 points on 9-of-13 shooting. Oliver Lafyatte had 14 points and five assists. The Turkish center Semih Erden, who the Celtics signed to a contract on Monday, started and scored two points and grabbed four rebounds in 21:56.
The Celtics summer league schedule continues as they play the 76ers on Tuesday.

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.

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.
Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis trails Yankees right fielder Nick Swisher in voting for the 34th spot on the American League All-Star team, according to MLB.com. The other candidates for the spot -- which will be determined by fan voting on MLB.com -- are Rangers third baseman Michael Young, White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko and Twins left fielder Delmon Young.
Youkilis is hitting .299 with a .416 OBP, .584 slugging mark, 17 homers, 54 RBI and an AL-leading 65 runs. Swisher is hitting .293/.373/.505 with 13 homers, 47 RBI and 47 runs.
