The team purchased the contract of infielder Jed Lowrie from Pawtucket of the International League.
Lowell was injured on the first at-bat of the game Wednesday night when he fielded Ivan Rodriguez's grounder and threw him out. X-rays were negative, but he showed up at Fenway stiff and sore on Thursday and was sent for more tests.
