MONDAY, 4:13pm: Lowry's scheduled throwing session has been pushed back, according to the AP. His agent says the lefty has not had a setback; he just wants to throw a few more bullpen sessions before auditioning.
THURSDAY, 1:35pm: Scott Lauber of the News Journal tweets that the Phillies will be there.
WEDNESDAY, 4:29pm: The Rangers will watch Lowry throw, reports MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan.
8:27am: Lefty Noah Lowry is set to throw for teams Tuesday, reports ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. The 29-year-old seeks a one-year contract after battling thoracic outlet syndrome the last few years. His last truly effective season was 2005.
Crasnick expects about 15 teams to attend the session, including the Reds, Red Sox, Cardinals, Braves, Astros, Dodgers, Mariners, Cubs, Nationals and Mets. Back in December, a Crasnick report linked the Padres, A's, Rockies, and Pirates to Lowry as well.
Lets see, if the lefty *did* have a setback, his agent would have said ….
“the lefty has not had a setback; he just wants to throw a few more bullpen sessions before auditioning.”
lol exactly what I was thinking… It’s too bad if that’s the case. He’s had so many injury problems.
I think the braves should at mildly interested. Lowry can’t really demand much with his injury history and I believe he would be a solid option in case our older arms go down. However, I assume one of the other teams will offer him more to entice him and of course any guy would like to have a rotation spot so probably the team that offers him the most guaranteed and at least a legitimate shot at a rotation spot will get him.
Noah is probably the most good looking of the San Francisco pitchers.
