Lowrie making slow, steady progress
He’s now able to participate in soft toss drills in the batting cage and continues to take ground balls. Lowrie said he’s working hard to the point of fatigue, but he’s not overdoing it and hopes to know soon when he’ll be able to go on a rehab assignment.
“It’s a slow, steady progression, which is what we thought it would be,” manager Terry Francona said.
Lowrie has been on the DL since June 17.
