Source: Hill leaning toward Phoenix

A source close to the situation has told Grant Hill is leaning toward re-signing with the Phoenix Suns. Hill has been a free agent prospect for the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks, among other teams, this summer. According to the source, Hill’s concern with coming to Boston is the decreased role, not the money. Visit Green Street for more information.

Lowrie goes 0-for-4 in Pawtucket, flashes leather
By: DJ Bean

Jed Lowrie batted second and started at shortstop Thursday night in Pawtucket as the rehabbing Boston shortstop continued his road back from wrist surgery and a bruised knee. Though he went 0-for-4 in the game and struck out on three pitches in the ninth, Lowrie worked the count full twice and smacked two hard-hit balls to center field, reaching the warning track on one of them. In the field, Lowrie showed no signs of discomfort,  particularly when he made a diving catch on a liner hit by Buffalo’s Wilson Valdez in the third inning. As previously reported by’s Joe Haggerty, the switch-hitting shortstop is set to rejoin the Red Sox as soon as July 18 in Toronto for the Sox’ second game back from the All-Star break. For all things Red Sox, check out the Full...

Lowrie could be back with Red Sox on July 18

Red Sox shortstop Jed Lowrie was taken off the 60-day disabled list and optioned to the minor leagues in a procedural move on Wednesday, and Sox manager Terry Francona stated Thursday that the switch-hitting should be ready to return to the Sox on July 18 -- barring any setbacks. The date marks the second game following the All-Star break, and is precisely when Lowrie's allowed to return to the big league roster. The Sox skipper indicated that the required 10-day minor league stay will be just what the doctor ordered for Lowrie, who has battled with a bruised right knee and inclement weather since embarking on his rehab assignment in mid-June.
"Because of weather and him getting banged in the knee, his rehab thing got screwed up," said Francona, who added that Lowrie was playing in Pawtucket Thursday night. "Friday was supposed to be his last day (of rehab) and he's not ready to play. The best (scenario) baseball-...
