Mike Lowell Needs Surgery, Trade Between Texas and Boston is Off

Evan Grant is reporting that Mike Lowell has a torn ligament in his thumb which will necessitate surgery that will sideline him from 6-8 weeks.

That surgery apparently has killed the much-discussed trade between the Rangers and Boston, whereby Lowell was going to come to Texas in exchange for Max Ramirez.

Thus, the Rangers are back in the market for a righty bat to split DH duties with David Murphy.
