Red Sox SS Lowrie out 6-to-8 weeks

April 21, 2009 at 6:54 PM   |   Comments

BOSTON, April 21 (UPI) -- Boston Red Sox shortstop Jed Lowrie had wrist surgery Tuesday and will not be playing the next 6-8 weeks.

"The big good news is that there's no damage to the TFCC, which is the cartilage, which is the potential problem," Red Sox Manager Terry Francona said. "Everything that was done today puts him on track to start swinging the bat in six weeks."

Lowrie was placed on the 15-day disabled list last Monday with a sprained left wrist. He had struggled this year with only one hit in 18 at-bats.

In 81 games last season, including 69 starts, Lowrie hit .258 with a pair of homers and 46 RBI.
