The team designated the 39-year-old Lowe for assignment following his latest poor outing, Tuesday night’s effort in Kansas City where Lowe gave up seven runs and eight hits in 2.1 innings of work. That continued a streak that has seen Lowe go 2-9 with an 8.28 ERA in his last 13 starts.
“It’s frustrating,” Lowe said after his start against the Royals. “You have a standard of what I’ve pitched like and this, this is not what you’re used to doing. But, it’s reality.”
