Lugo Misses Workout; Team Travels Without Him

Amid rumors that the Red Sox are doing everything they can to move him, Julio Lugo missed a mandatory team workout and didn't travel to Toronto with his teammates for their upcoming series against the Blue Jays. As Adam Kilgore of the Boston Globe reports, manager Terry Francona said Lugo missed the workout because of a mix-up. 

MLB.com's Ian Browne reports that Lugo didn't travel with the team and says the Red Sox could designate him for assignment and eventually release him. They need to make room on their roster for Clay Buchholz, Mike Lowell and Jed Lowrie.

In response to the news that the Red Sox are shopping Lugo, ESPN.com's Rob Neyer said teams could do worse, even though the Red Sox are sick of looking at Lugo's contract. R.J. Anderson of FanGraphs says Lugo has a league-average bat and a below-average glove.
