Lowell interests Tigers as Inge replacement

The Tigers, who lost third baseman Brandon Inge to a broken hand last week, have some interest in Mike Lowell, who began a minor-league rehabilitation assignment Thursday at Triple-A Pawtucket.

Lowell was Pawtucket's designated hitter on Thursday, and after a scheduled day off Friday, he's expected to play third base on Saturday. Lowell had a cortisone shot in his surgically repaired right hip this past week, and he told reporters in Pawtucket that he expects to be activated by the Red Sox next week.

Lowell has spent most of this season in limbo, because with Kevin Youkilis at first base and Adrian Beltre at third, Boston hasn't had a spot for him in the regular lineup. The Red Sox nearly traded Lowell to the Rangers last winter, because a different injury derailed the deal.

Lowell makes $10 million, but the Red Sox would obviously be willing to pick up most of the remaining money if they are able to move him. The Tigers, who called up Scott Sizemore to at least temporarily take Inge's place at third base, would be a good fit if they determine that Lowell is healthy enough to play regularly.

Inge suffered the injury Monday night, when he was hit by a Scott Feldman fastball. The Tigers said he would miss 4-6 weeks.

It appears an injury epidemic has hit the Tigers. They need much more than Lowell. Too bad now the white sox are winning the division.
