Mike Lowell will receive a day off today against the Braves and might miss tomorrow’s series finale.
“Mike is feeling a little beat up,” said Manager Terry Francona. “He might get two days off in a row. We messed around with (that idea) and we’ll see how he feels tomorrow.”
Francona said he’ll sit down with Lowell to discuss the ailments.
“He’s a tough guy, though,” he said. “He plays through everything.”
Mark Kotsay will start at first base in place of Lowell today. Kevin Youkilis will slide to third.
