BOSTON -- Red Sox infielder Jed Lowrie (shoulder) will continue his minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A Pawtucket this weekend.
He will serve as the PawSox’s designated hitter Friday night and will play shortstop on Saturday before having Sunday off. If everything goes as planned, he’ll be activated on Monday and travel with the Red Sox to Minnesota.
He is a combined 3-for-8 with a double, two RBIs and a walk in three rehab games at Triple A.
“He swung the bat well and made a diving play right on that shoulder,” Francona said. “He did fine.”
