BALTIMORE (AP) - Boston Red Sox third baseman Mike Lowell was
placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a strained right hip.
Lowell had fluid drained from his hip Monday in Boston, and received an injection designed to the surgically repaired joint.
The move is retroactive to June 28; Lowell had played in only two of Boston's last nine games and returned to Boston following Sunday night's game in Atlanta. The 35-year-old is batting .282 with 10 home runs and 41 RBIs.
The Red Sox filled the void by recalling first baseman/outfielder Jeff Bailey from Triple-A Pawtucket. Bailey played earlier this season with Boston, batting .188 with three homers and nine RBIs in 23 games before being optioned to Pawtucket on May 31.
