Ranger medical staff to examine Mike Lowell this weekend

T.R. Sullivan reports that the Ranger medical staff will be examining Mike Lowell this weekend, with the focus on Lowell's right thumb, which may require surgery.

Of particular interest is that Sullivan says that the Rangers apparently plan on having David Murphy be their primary DH, with Lowell thus being sort of a platoon partner for Murphy and a backup first baseman and third baseman.
