Rays attempt reclamation with reliever lowe
ST. PETERSBURG — The Rays picked up a potential addition to their bullpen, agreeing to a minor-league deal with hard-throwing right-hander Mark Lowe.
Lowe, 30, has pitched parts of eight seasons in the majors as a middle reliever with the Mariners, Rangers and Angels, compiling a 4.17 ERA. He gave up the walkoff homer to St. Louis' David Freese in Game 6 of the 2011 World Series.
The Rays talked to Lowe last offseason but he signed with the Dodgers. He ended up opting out of that deal and joining the Angels, got let go in late May after 11 appearances then signed with Washington but pitched only at Triple A.
The Rays re-signed minor-league free-agent pitchers Victor Mateo, Eduar Quinonez and Albert Suarez.
