While some believed Derek Lowe's better years may be behind him following a disappointing 2011, it's safe to say he still has plenty left in the tank. The right-hander, however, hasn't experienced much success against the Minnesota Twins over the course of his career. Seeking a fourth consecutive win, Lowe looks to help the visiting Cleveland Indians continue their recent domination of the major league-worst Twins when the teams conclude a two-game set Tuesday afternoon. A change of scenery seems to have done wonders for Lowe, who was acquired from Atlanta after going 9-17 with a 5.05 ERA with the Braves last season. The 38-year-old sinkerballer is off to one of his better starts, going 5-1 with a 2.47 ERA through seven turns in the rotation. Lowe, who's gone 3-0 while yielding two runs or fewer in each of his last four outings, gave up two and nine hits over six innings of Thursday's 8-3 win at Boston. "He knows how to pitch with a lead," manager ...

What’s Going on with Derek Lowe?

When the Indians traded for Derek Lowe immediately after the 2011 season, I thought it was a pretty shrewd move.  They were buying low—PUNS!!—on a pitcher who had run into some incredibly tough luck during the 2011 campaign.  Atlanta seemed a bit eager to cut bait with him due to his terrible close to the 2011 season: from August 2nd until the end of the season, opposing batters...

Derek Lowe Speechless After Red Sox Replace Pitcher's Stolen World Series Ring

Derek Lowe is a very talkative guy, but even he couldn't muster up words following a classy gesture by the Red Sox organization. John Henry, Larry Lucchino and Tom Werner presented Lowe with a 2004 World Series ring to replace the one that was stolen from his Florida home last month, and the Indians hurler couldn't have been any more pleased.

Indians 5, Twins 0: Derek Keeps Sad Sack Twins On the Down Lowe

Who had this one pegged? The Indians were looking to add to the back end of the rotation after the season ended. They made their first move rather quickly.

The guy was due $15 million...

Lowe has been a highlight for Indians

It's getting to the point now where it's safe to say that Derek Lowe is saving the Indians' rotation. Without Lowe, the Indians' spotty rotation would be an even bigger mess than it already is. Tuesday, in his best start of the season, and his best start in several seasons, Lowe pitched a six-hit shutout over Minnesota in leading the Indians to a 5-0 victory. ...
