Scutaro Returns for Tonights Game

NEW YORK (AP) – The Boston Red Sox have activated shortstop
Marco Scutaro from the 15-day disabled list and inserted him into
the lineup for Monday night's game against the New York Yankees,
giving aching infielder Jed Lowrie some rest.
      Scutaro has been out since May 8 because of a strained left
oblique. Manager Terry Francona said his playing time will depend
on how others are feeling, including Lowrie.
      Lowrie hurt his shoulder in a collision chasing a popup on May
29 in Detroit. He says the shoulder hasn't gotten better – or worse
– and he hopes to have an MRI as soon as possible for his “peace
of mind.”
      Scutaro is hitting .235 with one home run and eight RBIs in 20
games.
      To make room, the Red Sox sent RHP Scott Atchison to Triple-A
Pawtucket.
