The Red Sox placed third baseman Mike Lowell on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, hoping to give his troublesome right hip some more time to heal.
Lowell underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in the hip during the offseason, and he had 15 CCs of fluid removed on Monday. He also received an injection of Synvisc, a lubricant that helps alleviate pain in joints. The 35-year-old Lowell started just two of the team’s past nine games and returned to Boston for treatment on the hip following Sunday’s game in Atlanta. He was hitting .282 with 10 homers and 41 RBIs in 68 games when placed on the DL.
