Alumni week in Fort Myers continued yesterday with the arrival of former World Series MVP Mike Lowell.
Lowell was in town at the behest of second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who thought Lowell could offer some insights into playing third base to young Red Sox counterpart Will Middlebrooks.
Lowell was happy to oblige.

“Pedroia wanted me to visit him,” Lowell said. “That was part one. I think Pedey talked to Will and said we communicated and worked well together turning double plays and said he wouldn’t mind doing some stuff. I don’t think it’s anything he does wrong. I love guys who might want to hear something else because you never know what can trigger something good.
“I remember (former Yankees) Scott Brosius and Luis Sojo and Graig Nettles, they told me things they probably meant in passing but it sticks with you when you’re young.
“I don’t know. We’re not going to reinvent the wheel. We’re just going to talk about stuff and hopefully it helps.”
Lowell, who lives in Miami, sported his familiar No. 25 jersey and expects to be in camp for a couple of days.
Middlebrooks discussed the nuts and bolts of the advice he shared, and noted the two crossed paths before, with Middlebrooks spending spring training with Lowell in 2010.
