Pregame: Red Sox Vs. Braves

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.
