Rays Release Mark Lowe

Angels_Mark_Lowe_2014 [1]

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 [2].

Lowe was injured and ineffective for the Angels last season, but for the Rangers in 2011 and 2012 he posted a combined 3.63 ERA with 70 strikeouts in 84 innings.
