    Mark Lowe failed to make the Opening Day roster for the Rays despite an excellent spring and Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the right-hander has agreed to a minor league contract with the Indians. Lowe posted an 0.87 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio as a non-roster invitee with Tampa Bay during…

  2. Rays release Mark Lowe despite impressive spring

    Mark Lowe has been fantastic this spring, throwing 10.1 innings with a 0.87 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio, but the Rays decided not to give him a spot in the Opening Day bullpen and granted the right-hander’s request to be released. Lowe was injured and ineffective for the Angels last season, but for the Rangers…

    The Rays have their latest reclamation project, as ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports that the club has signed reliever Mark Lowe to a minor league contract.

    As confirmed by MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez, the Angels have activated right-hander Jered Weaver from the disabled list and designated reliever Mark Lowe for assignment to clear a 25-man roster spot. Weaver will return to the Anaheim starting rotation on Wednesday night against the Dodgers after missing the past seven weeks with a fracture in his…

  5. Garrett Richards to replace Jered Weaver in Angels’ rotation

    Apr 9, 2013, 7:02 PM EDT

    Garrett Richards

    If the Angels had felt better about their bullpen, Garrett Richards likely would have opened the season in Triple-A as the team’s sixth starter. Since they didn’t, he was quickly emerging as a major league setup man. However, Jered Weaver‘s left elbow injury has changed all that, and the Angels announced that Richards would move…

  6. Josh Hamilton rebounds, but Rangers beat Angels 7-3

    Apr 7, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish pitches against the Los Angeles Angels in Arlington, Texas

    Even though Josh Hamilton finished his return to Texas by going 3-for-5, the Rangers claimed the series Sunday night, beating the Angels 7-3. Unfortunately, Hamilton failed to come through when it would have made the biggest difference. After Yu Darvish opened the top of the first with a walk, a hit by pitch and another…

    It took a while, but the first ever interleague matchup on Opening Day is in the books. In a four-hour and 45-minute marathon, the Angels topped the Reds 3-1 in 13 innings this evening at Great American Ballpark. While the hyped trio of Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton combined to go 1-for-14 with three…

    Released by the Dodgers earlier this week, right-hander Mark Lowe has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Angels. Lowe has struggled to stay healthy for most of his career, but throws hard and had a 3.63 ERA in 88 appearances for the Rangers during the past two seasons, posting a 70/32 K/BB ratio in…

    Dylan Henandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Dodgers have released righty Mark Lowe. Lowe allowed five runs — four earned — in 8 2/3 innings this spring with the Dodgers, walking three batters and striking out six. He signed a minor league contract with a spring training invite in early February. It…

  10. Dodgers sign Kevin Gregg

    Feb 11, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Kevin Gregg

    Kevin Gregg went from closer to out of work reliever in a hurry and now the 34-year-old right-hander has signed a minor-league deal with the Dodgers. He’ll get an invitation to spring training, although the Dodgers’ bullpen is already pretty crowded and they also recently added Mark Lowe on a minor-league contract. Gregg was never…

  11. Dodgers sign Mark Lowe to minor league deal

    Mark Lowe threw for a bunch of teams last week and apparently the Dodgers came away impressed, as Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that they’ve signed the reliever to a one-year deal. According to Crasnick it’s a minor-league contract that would pay $1.5 million upfront and another $600,000 in potential incentives if Lowe makes the…

  12. 2013 Free Agency Tracker

    Zack Greinke, Ned Colletti, Magic Johnson

    We’ll be updating this one throughout the offseason. Players are listed based on their ranking in the Top 111 Free Agents. At the bottom is a listing of free agents who signed before the ranking came out, and we’ll be adding signings of players who didn’t make the top 111 as they come in. (Update:…

    I would have preferred to have posted this last week, but here’s the remainder of the updated top 111 free agents column. In case you missed it, the top 50 was posted last Friday. Players in the top 111 are ranked based not on how I view them, but more on how I believe teams…

  14. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 26, 2012, 6:11 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 4, Marlins 3: The Braves clinch a playoff berth on a Freddie Freeman walkoff jack. It only guarantees them a slot in the one-game gimmicky thing next Friday, but that beats the hell out of last September. The only thing that would have made this better is if Heath Bell, as the the Marlins…

    It’s getting to be that time of year, so here is the first of two stabs at a Top 111 free agents list. The other will come shortly after the World Series concludes. Players are ranked based on how I believe teams perceive them, not how I view them myself. Essentially, I rank the players…

  16. Rangers interested in re-signing reliever Michael Gonzalez

    Jan 6, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    2011 World Series Game 7 - Texas Rangers v St Louis Cardinals

    Michael Gonzalez threw just seven innings for the Rangers after coming over from the Orioles in an August 31 trade, but pitched well in the playoffs and impressed the team enough that they’re interested in re-signing the left-handed reliever. Gonzalez underwent minor knee surgery shortly after the season ended and Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas…

  17. Will the Rangers try to keep up with the Angels?

    Dec 8, 2011, 6:18 PM EDT

    Jon Daniels

    The Rangers can come close to matching their AL West rivals; all they’d need to do is commit $150 million-$200 million to free agent Prince Fielder and then another $80 million-$100 million in the form of a posting fee and a contract for Yu Darvish. What’s the big deal? As things stand now, the Rangers are currently…

    San Francisco made no changes to its roster for the World Series, but Texas made a minor switch in the bullpen by dropping left-hander Clay Rapada and replacing him with right-hander Mark Lowe. Rapada was added to the ALCS roster to help combat the Yankees’ left-handed hitters, and particularly Robinson Cano, but he failed to…
