Red Sox 3B Mike Lowell was placed on the 15 day DL after spraining his right thumb fielding a ground ball by Ivan Rodriguez on Wednesday night. Kevin Youkilis moves back to his old position at third while Sean Casey is inserted at 1B. Lester had a rough outing versus the Tigers last Wednesday surrendering 4 runs, 5 hits and 4 walks through 5 1/3rd innings. Jake Westbrook started the season with two quality starts and sports an ERA of 2.76 over 16 1/3rd innings pitched this season. Westbrook pitched a complete game victory over the LA Angels in his last start limiting the #1 hitting team in MLB to 3 runs and 7 hits over 9 innings. Westbrook looks to be in good health to begin the season after a 2007 injury plagued season. What's been impressive about Westbrook this season is his good stats came against strong offensive ball clubs. Righties are batting .207 and lefties .247 against the veteran right-hander this season. Let's take Cleveland +115.
