Brown, Lowrie called up as Pawtucket season ends


Following this afternoon's season-ending tilt in Syracuse, the Pawtucket Red Sox bid adieu to catcher Dusty Brown (pictured) and infielder Jed Lowrie. According to Mark Divver of the Providence Journal, both men have been called up to join the expanded active roster in Boston. For Lowrie, this will be his third stint in the major leagues this season as he has struggled to come back from a variety of complications with his surgically-repaired left wrist. In 56 big league at-bats so far in 2009, Lowrie has managed to hit just .143/.206/.232 with 1 home run and 7 RBI. The results weren't much better for Lowrie on his various rehab assignments either, as he hit a combined .210/.330/.395 in 81 minor league at-bats.

For Brown, meanwhile, this will be his second trip to Boston in 2009, although he did not receive an at-bat the first time around. In 291 at-bats for Pawtucket this season, Brown put together a .261/.343/.323 line with 2 home runs and 22 RBI. The 27-year-old will become the fourth catcher on the Boston roster, joining Jason Varitek, Victor Martinez, and George Kottaras.
