Odds & Ends: Lowe, Tracy, Brewers

  • Ken Davidoff of Newsday thinks the Braves will shop Derek Lowe in the offseason.  Lowe is owed $15MM per year through 2012.
  • Despite seeing limited action this year, Chad Tracy will get the start at first base in Arizona's home finale tonight against the Padres, according to Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic.  This is seen as a symbolic gesture as Arizona could pick up Tracy's $7MM option for 2010 but in all likelihood will buy out his remaining year for $1MM.
  • The Associated Press reports that Ken Macha has discussed his status heading into next year with GM Doug Melvin.  Macha is under contract through 2010 but a losing season has put his job in jeopardy. 
  • MLB.com's Anthony Castrovince writes that Jose Veras, who will be arbitration eligible, might be on his way to earning a new contract with Cleveland.  Veras has shined since being called up on September 1st, posting 12 Ks and allowing just one earned run in 9.2 IP.
