The Red Sox infielder is slated to be activated Wednesday before the series finale in Oakland, ending a long comeback from a broken wrist and a bout of mononucleosis.
Lowrie has been battling back for a while, and after returning to the field and completing a rehab assignment, he’s excited to just be feeling healthy again.
“The first time I went and played actually felt healthy, it was a good feeling,” Lowrie said before Tuesday’s game. “It was almost a foreign feeling.”
Lowrie played well for the Red Sox in 2008 and then saw limited time in 2009 while battling a left wrist injury.
His return to the club, though, will certainly add depth to a team that will take any good news it can get on the injury front.
“He really is feeling healthy at this point,” said Amalie Benjamin of The Boston Globe. “He really should be able to help this team. They’ve needed him over the last couple of weeks with Dustin Pedroia out. It’s good to see him back and potentially able to help the Red Sox.”
