A few things….

So Jed Lowrie gets the nod in the Metrodome with Julio Lugo’s head hurting after his collision last night. Lugo is going for tests right now to determine how severe a concussion he has. He said he felt dizzy and had headaches and almost came out of Friday night’s game.

Lowrie was placing short and batting ninth. Alex Cora is playing shortstop at Pawtucket tonight and he likely will be up tomorrow night while Lowrie could go down. But that might depend on Lugo’s condition. Sean Casey, playing first base in Pawtucket, likely will be up tomorrow as well. It appears that Craig Hansen would go back to Pawtucket.

J.D. Drew is getting the night off against lefty Glen Perkins, but Jacoby Ellsbury gets the start in right field while Coco Crisp is in center.
