Indians designate Lowe for assignment
Lowe was acquired by the Indians from the Braves this past offseason, and he went 6-2 with a 2.15 ERA through his first nine starts. However, the righty struggled mightily after Memorial Day, pitching to an 8.80 ERA in his last dozen starts and allowing seven runs on eight hits in just 2 1/3 innings in his final start against Kansas City on Tuesday.
Following that outing, Lowe leaves Cleveland with an 8-10 record, a 5.52 ERA, and more walks (45) than strikeouts (41) in 119 innings this season. For his career, the two-time AL All-Star is 174-156 with a 4.01 ERA and 85 saves in 16 seasons with Seattle, Boston, the Dodgers, Atlanta, and Cleveland.
According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, Lowe, who would’ve been a free agent at the end of the year, had expressed interest in returning to the Red Sox in 2013, and that could now be a possibility if he is not claimed on waivers and is given his unconditional release by Cleveland.
