Jed Lowrie, healthy and ready to prove himself in 2011, is currently penciled in as a backup shortstop and utility infielder. The switch-hitter is entering his fourth MLB season and likely itching for a starting job — a role he'll be pushing hard for this spring in Fort Myers.
The Sox also have a hot prospect in the farm system in Jose Iglesias. The smooth-fielding 21-year-old from Cuba has been wowing fans with his glove work since joining the franchise in 2009.
Who will be the Sox' starting shortstop come August? With what mindset is Lowrie entering the 2011 campaign? Ask him for yourself, as he'll be appearing on Red Sox Live, alongside Scott Atchison, on Wednesday night.
A brand new episode of Red Sox Live From Fort Myers will be airing every weeknight and weekend morning for 13 straight days starting on Sunday, Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. ET. During every episode, NESN baseball analysts will answer questions from fans. Leave your questions in the comments section below, and watch Red Sox Hot Stove Live to see if Lowrie, Atchison, Don Orsillo, Tom Caron or Peter Gammons answer them on air.
