Bailey back to Boston as Lowell hits DL

After starting just 2 of the last 9 games for the Red Sox, third baseman Mike Lowell was placed on the 15-day disabled list today with a strained right hip, the same hip on which he had surgery following the 2008 playoffs. He will be replaced on the Boston roster by Jeff Bailey, who will be in tonight's starting lineup against Baltimore, hitting ninth and playing first base. For Bailey, who has hit .259/.373/.424 for Triple-A Pawtucket this season and an impressive .316/.447/.526 over his last 10 games, this will be his third major league stint of 2009. In 23 games and 69 at-bats over his first two stays with Boston, Bailey put together .188/.309/.391 numbers with 3 home runs and 9 RBI.
