Lowrie back with Boston, Buchholz optioned

As was expected, shortstop Jed Lowrie was recalled to Boston and in the starting lineup today against Toronto, ending the brief 2009 major league tenure of Clay Buchholz for now. Buchholz, who was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket to make room for Lowrie, started last night for Boston at Toronto, firing 5.2 innings giving up only 1 earned run on 4 hits and 3 walks with 3 strikeouts. Lowrie had originally been assigned to short-season Lowell after coming off the disabled list on July 8, but played for three different teams in the minors, accumulating a .220/.310/.320 line with 5 RBI for Lowell, Portland, and Pawtucket in 2009. In his Red Sox minor league career, Lowrie has been a .285/.379/.441 hitter with 25 home runs and 189 RBI in 351 games played over parts of five seasons. The switch-hitting former first-round pick also owns .245/.327/.378 in parts of two major league seasons.
