Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies spoke recently to the representatives for free agent right-hander Derek Lowe. But the Colorado front office is only interested in signing the veteran starter to a minor league deal and Lowe is currently holding out for something a little more lucrative.

Lowe posted a 5.11 ERA and 1.62 WHIP in 142 2/3 frames last year between the Indians and Yankees, recording only 55 strikeouts and issuing 51 walks.

The 39-year-old recently finished up a four-year, $60 million contract that paid him $15 million in 2012. He has earned $110.4 million in his 16-year career.

    I discussed having a threesome with my wife and a supermodel once, but it didn’t happen.

    First Kevin Millwood, then Brandon Webb. Will Derek Lowe be the next aging veteran to opt for retirement rather than pitch at Coors Field?
