The Boston Red Sox will wait a few days to see how third baseman Mike Lowell's ailing right hip responds to the latest treatment.

Lowell had fluid drained Monday and also got an injection that might relieve inflammation in his surgically repaired hip.

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said it's unlikely Lowell would rejoin the team in Baltimore, where Boston plays through Wednesday. In the meantime, the Red Sox will see whether Lowell improves or needs to go on the disabled list.

Lowell had arthroscopic surgery on his right hip last October. He is hitting .282 with 10 home runs and 41 RBIs, and has not played since appearing as a pinch-hitter Saturday.
