Derek Lowe has turned down multiple offers

At least five teams have contacted Derek Lowe about the right hander pitching for them in 2013. Lowe, 39, still believes he can serve as a big league starter and has turned down those offers. Teams contacting Lowe have asked about him being a swing man. “I’ve heard the same thing from everyone,” Lowe said. “I want to be a starter and feel I have a lot left in being a regular...

Roster Move: Indians Release Derek Lowe

After designating him for assignment last week, the Cleveland Indians announced Friday that they have released veteran Derek Lowe. The 39-year-old was just 2-8 with an 8.80 ERA in 12 starts since May 26 after a hot start to the season for the regressing Tribe. The team had 10 days to trade or release him, with no real likelihood existing for him to accept an assignment to AAA Columbus...

Derek Lowe has pitched himself out of the Indians’ rotation and off the team. Following Wednesday night’s loss to the Royals, the Indians designated Lowe for assignment. Being called up to join the rotation is Corey Kluber. Lowe started the season strong, but has had a brutal two months. Tuesday’s poor outing was apparently the last straw- “Lowe — acquired in an offseason...

Lowe looks to get the Tribe back on track

While Derek Lowe was enduring one of the worst seasons of his career in 2011, the Chicago White Sox's Jake Peavy was dealing with another injury-plagued one. Now healthy, Peavy will try to add to his promising campaign when he faces a rejuvenated Lowe and the Cleveland Indians on Saturday afternoon. Peavy, the 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner, hasn't won more than seven games...

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...

Preview - Indians at Minnesota Twins

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...

Newly Acquired Derek Lowe Already Preparing for his Season with the Cleveland Indians

The off-season has already been a bit of a whirlwind for veteran right-handed pitcher Derek Lowe.  In September, Lowe started five games for the Atlanta Braves, a month that ended with the sinker-ball pitcher boasting a tumultuous 8.75 ERA and a WHIP of 1.99 with the opposition hitting succeeding at a sky-high rate of .373. With his Atlanta Braves collapsing and infusing young...
