From the official Twitter account of the Arizona Diamondbacks …
Pollock missed three months with a fractured right hand that required surgery. He is in the Diamondbacks’ lineup for the first time since May 31 on Tuesday night against the Reds. The 26-year-old center fielder was batting .216/.366/.554 with six home runs and eight stolen bases in 52 games before suffering the injury.
Owings missed over two months with a dislocated left shoulder. He is not in Arizona’s starting lineup on Tuesday but should return Wednesday. The shortstop was batting .277/.313/.458 with six homers and seven steals in 72 games and might have won 2014 NL Rookie of the Year honors had his health cooperated.
The Mariners have signed reliever Mark Lowe, ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports. The Tigers released him on Sunday.
Lowe, 33, is entering the last of a two-year, $11 million deal signed with the Tigers in December 2015. The right-hander struggled to a 7.11 ERA with a 49/21 K/BB ratio in 49 1/3 innings last season. His performance this spring didn’t do much to inspire confidence.
Lowe began his major league career with the Mariners, breaking out in 2009 with a 3.26 ERA across 80 innings. He has been inconsistent throughout most of his 11-year big league career, however.
The Cardinals announced on Thursday that pitcher Trevor Rosenthal has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right lat strain. Sam Tuivailala has been added to the roster in Rosenthal’s place.
The Cardinals’ closer until the second half last year, Rosenthal came into camp this spring hoping to battle for a rotation spot. However, the lat injury killed that dream. When Rosenthal is healthy, he’ll return to the bullpen.
Last season, Rosenthal posted a 4.46 ERA with 14 saves and a 56/29 K/BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings.
