The Red Sox have placed SS Jed Lowrie on the 15-day disabled list with a left wrist sprain and have called up INF Gil Velazquez from Pawtucket in a corresponding move. The injury is to the same wrist that dogged Lowrie at the end of last season. He will return to Boston to undergo testing. Velazquez will be in uniform for tonight's game against Oakland. In four games with the Paw Sox, Velazquez was hitting .222/.263/.222 (four hits in 18 at-bats).
