Lowell: 'I've got nothing to say'

By Joe McDonald

BOSTON -- It appears the Red Sox and Mike Lowell have figured out the veteran’s future, but what exactly that entails remains to be seen.

General manager Theo Epstein, manager Terry Francona and Lowell met behind closed doors following the Sox’s 5-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday at Fenway Park. Lowell later walked over to his locker, grabbed his iPad and was heading toward the exit when reporters stopped him.

“I’ve got nothing to say, so it’s not necessary,” Lowell said.

With that he left.

Following the 4 p.m. trade deadline, Epstein was asked about Lowell’s situation.

“We’re going to sit down with Mike after the game,” the GM said. “I haven’t had a chance to talk to him because of the timing and the deadline. I won’t to talk to you guys about it before I talk to him about it. We’ll be around after the game and I’m sure tomorrow he’ll talk about it.”

What “it” is remains to be seen.
