Steven Souza wins GIBBY for Play of the Year

8 Comments

The 2014 Greatness in Baseball Yearly (GIBBY) awards were handed out on Saturday night and Nationals outfielder Steven Souza got Play of the Year for his no-hitter-preserving catch

The GIBBYs were initiated by Major League Baseball in 2002. They’re a bit silly, but any reason is a good reason to watch that play again. Souza got a Best Buy gift card from Jordan Zimmermann for the effort.

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.
