Henry Schulman of The San Francisco Chronicle (hat tip to mlbtraderumors) tweeted that Noah Lowry could be close to choosing which team to play for in 2010.
Lowry hasn’t pitched since 2007 when he won 14 games and posted an ERA of 3.92, due to thoracic outlet syndrome, which was originally misdiagnosed by the Giants.
Lowry is interesting because I find it almost impossible that he could be asking for a guaranteed deal after missing two full seasons. He would be an interesting pitcher to invite to spring training on an incentive based deal. He could compete with John Maine and Oliver Perez for a back end spot in the rotation.
Lowry should in no way be the Mets’ biggest addition to the starting rotation, but he gives them more options to choose from.
Lowry has been connected to multiple teams including Mariners, Dodgers, A’s, Red, and Padres. Lowry has an ERA of 4.03 for his career.
