Brandon Beachy’s season is over

All of us who are convinced that Matt Harvey should go get Tommy John surgery yesterday should probably remind ourselves that it’s not ALWAYS a routine thing. Take Brandon Beachy who hasn’t been able to get right this year:

 

Beachy has pitched in five games this year and he’s now likely done for the season.

The Braves are now short him, Tim Hudson and Paul Maholm in the rotation. Not gonna hate on ’em, but no, the Braves are not currently my favorite to come out of the NL playoffs.

Mark Lowe wants to attempt a comeback

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.
