Lowell to receive shot

Mike Lowell said he’s expecting to receive a shot sometime before Monday’s series against Kansas City. Lowell, in the lineup today, will likely get Monday off.

Lowell did not know if he was receiving cortisone or some other type of pain-reducing shot to alleviate soreness in his right hip flexor. Lowell also received a cortisone shot before the All-Star break.
