Red Sox SS Jed Lowrie to miss at least 1 game

TORONTO -- Boston Red Sox shortstop Jed Lowrie will miss at least one game because of ongoing problems with his right shoulder.

Red Sox manager Terry Francona sat the struggling infielder Sunday, with Monday an off day before a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays. Francona also sat Lowrie for two games in New York this past week.

"We'll check on Jed Tuesday and see how he's doing there. We might even give him another one," Francona said. "What I want him to do is be able to go out there and feel good. Maybe two or three days will kind of jump-start that a little bit."

The 27-year-old is just 4 for 32 in June and made two errors in Boston's 5-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night.

Marco Scutaro took over at shortstop Saturday and went 4 for 6 with three runs scored in a 16-4 win over the Blue Jays. He is 8 for 20 in four games since returning from an oblique injury.
