The Gold Glove award announcements don’t come out until tomorrow, but the Chicago Tribune reports that Mark Buehrle’s wife Jamie posted this today on her Facebook page today:
“So proud of my husband. He is now a TWO time gold glove winner!!!”
I would have been able to report this news myself if it wasn’t for the fact that Jamie Buehrle has ignored my constant friend requests.
Maybe I should change my picture. Do you think I should chance my picture?
Reliever Mark Lowe wants to make a comeback, Jerry Crasnick reports. The 35-year-old veteran is working out in Portland, Oregon and would take an opportunity to pitch overseas as well as a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Lowe signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers back in January, but was cut in the middle of March and didn’t end up signing with another team. He last pitched in the majors in 2016 with the Tigers. Across parts of 11 seasons, Lowe has a career 4.22 ERA with 352 strikeouts and 163 walks in 385 2/3 innings. Lowe spent 2017 at Triple-A for the Mariners and White Sox, compiling a devilish 6.66 ERA in aggregate across 48 2/3 innings.
