This is getting worrisome: Adam Kilgore reports that Wilson Ramos’ family still hasn’t heard from the kidnappers.
Now, as that expert we linked to yesterday suggested, it’s possible that they actually have been contacted and that everyone involved thinks it best to not let that information out, but man, this is not any less unsettling today than it was yesterday.
There’s nothing to do but wait. But if you’re in Washington, Kilgore reports that a candlelight vigil is going to be held outside Nationals Park tonight at 6 p.m.
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.
