Lowell to meet with Rangers on Saturday

Dec 19, 2009, 11:56 AM EDT

Jayson Stark of ESPN.com reports that Mike Lowell will fly to Texas on Saturday to meet with the Rangers’ front office and take a physical.



The Rangers have a preliminary
agreement to trade catcher Max Ramirez to the Red Sox in exchange for
Lowell and cash considerations, however the trade has been on hold for
more than a week as the club evaluates the 35-year-old’s
surgically-repaired right hip and right thumb. Lowell met with a hand
specialist in Arizona earlier this week.




Stark writes that Lowell would be
the club’s regular third baseman, but with Michael Young entrenched at
the position, he’ll more likely be asked to play some first base for
the first time in his major league career.
