The Cleveland Indians designated Derek Lowe for assignment Wednesday night, one day after the veteran right-hander was shelled by Kansas City.
Lowe gave up seven runs on eight hits, two walks and a balk over 2 1/3 innings in Cleveland’s 8-3 loss Tuesday night. He had lost four straight, had a 15.88 ERA in his past three starts and an 8.80 ERA in his past 12.
The 39-year-old began the season 6-1 with a 2.05 ERA, but is 2-9 since with his ERA ballooning to 5.52.
Now THERE is the DL we all know and love (the fact we rid ourselves of him…)
His Nickname should be: The Tease
Guess his unusually low batting average on balls in play coupled with almost no strikeouts finally caught up with him…
