The Oakland A’s are off today, but they’re off in Boston where they begin a weekend series against the Sox tomorrow. Josh Reddick, for his part, is not content to go sightseeing on his day off. Rather, he’s taking in the Rays-Sox game today. Maybe because he wants to watch his former teammates. Maybe, because it’s swag day at Fenway Park:
Nice seats for Reddick, there. I wonder if he knows a guy.
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.
