Van Every designated for assignment, Lowrie assigned to Lowell


With Jed Lowrie's rehab assignment time set to expire on Saturday, the Red Sox tonight activated the 25-year-old shortstop and optioned him to short-season Lowell. To make room for Lowrie to make room on the 40-man roster, injured outfielder Jon Van Every was designated for assignment. Van Every had been on the 7-day disabled list since June 2 with an injured left knee and had hit .215/.378/.462 in 65 at-bats for Pawtucket this season. He had also appeared in 7 major league games for Boston, hitting .364/.462/.636 in 11 at-bats. Lowrie, who had been moved to the 60-day disabled list on Monday to make room on the 40-man roster for Aaron Bates, had gone 5 for 19 during his rehab assignment, playing for Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket. He originally went on the 15-day disabled list on April 13 with pain in his left wrist and had surgery on that wrist eight days later.
