Cory Kluber will be called up on Thursday afternoon to fill the roster vacancy. He’s scheduled to start Thursday night’s series-finale against the Royals.
Lowe was hammered for seven runs on eight hits in just 2 1/3 innings Tuesday against the Royals, lifting his season ERA to 5.52. He has an 8.80 ERA and 26/27 K/BB ratio over his last 12 outings.
The 39-year-old right-hander may struggle to draw interest from other teams once he hits the open market.
