Put Lowrie on ice

You think Jed Lowrie is ready for Opening Day? The switch-hitter continues to crush the ball in Spring Training. He had another big night in Sarasota, going 3-for-4 with a homer. Lowrie is hitting .462 on the spring with six doubles, two triples, two homers and 10 RBIs.

“Put him on
ice,” said Red Sox manager Terry Francona. “I’m stating the obvious, but he’s been taking great swings. He’s been swinging
the bat since Day One. He’s probably in a little bit more of a groove because
he’s playing a little more consistently than everybody else. But he has been on
everything. It’s been fun to watch.”


Obviously Lowrie is a different player with a healthy wrist than the guy who tried as best he could throughout the second half of 2008.


“To be brutally
honest, he didn’t get to those pitches last year. Especially towards the end of
the year. He looks like he feels good about himself. He should,” Francona said.

“To be
able to stay on top of that ball and stay through it instead of just coming
around it, that’s the difference,” Lowrie said.
