According to Will Carroll, “…Synvisc is quick-acting and is removed by the body, putting him on the DL now would indicate that it didn't work…” But Lowell felt good and wanted to play tomorrow . Either the Sox are taking a more cautious course of action with the third baseman or Lowell is trying to gut it out similar to the end of last year. Regardless, it is unlikely that Lowell will have a prolonged stint on the DL, which could complicate the Sox roster management.

The Sox probably won’t be acquiring a Nick Johnson or Adam LaRoche since it would be at the expense of Mark Kotsay, without an additional move. The versatile veteran is necessary due to the fragility of Drew, Rocco’s inability to play everyday, Jon Van Every out for the rest of the year and Ellsbury desire to run through walls. Unless the Sox acquire a right-handed hitting RF that can handle center, like Ryan Spilborghs, then a big name first or third baseman is “not walking through that door.”
