As expected, Indians release veteran Derek Lowe

 

Ten days ago, the Cleveland Indians designated veteran right-hander Derek Lowe for assignment. That meant the team had ten days to trade, or release him.  Today, Friday August 10 was the deadline.

The verdict is Cleveland has released Lowe.

There are reports on Twitter that Lowe will start or relieve and would like to go back to the National League.

The 39-year-old Lowe,  posted a 5.52 ERA with 3.1 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9 in 119 innings with Cleveland this year. He has a 15 million dollar salary, but the Braves and Indians are responsible for all but the pro-rated MLB minimum at this point. So any team can sign him and only have to pay the minimum salary.

Lopez is the latest player designated for assignment by slumping Indians

 

The Cleveland Indians, in the midst of a 10-game losing streak, have given Derek Lowe and Johnny Damon some company on the”designated for assignment” list. Today, the team announced that they designated infielder Jose Lopez for assignment. The move allows room for right-hander Frank Herrmann who has been recalled from Triple-A Columbus. Herrmann is needed due to an over-used bullpen.

Lopez appeared in 66 games for the Indians this year, playing third base and seeing some time at first and second. The 28-year-old posted a .249 batting average in 224 plate appearances. He earns $800K this year after signing a minor league deal with Cleveland last December.

No surprise! Indians designate Lowe for assignment

 

Following a 5-2 loss to the Kansas City Royals, Cleveland Indians pitcher Derek Lowe did not know that it would probably be his last outing for the team. The Indians have designated Lowe for assignment due to his continued struggles on the mound. The Indians took a chance on Lowe over the offseason, acquiring him in a trade with the Braves, but the veteran sinkerballer has been hammered more often than not.

In 21 starts for Cleveland this season, the 39-year-old Lowe went 8-10 with a 5.52 ERA. Lowe stormed out of the gates with a 6-1 record and an American League-leading 2.05 ERA through eight outings before every start became a disaster.

Over his last 13 starts, Lowe went 2-9 with an 8.28 ERA, allowing 65 runs (61 earned) on 97 hits with 28 strikeouts and 28 walks over 66 1/3 innings.

By designating Lowe for assignment, the Indians have 10 days to trade or release Lowe, or the club can send him outright to a Minor League affiliate if he clears waivers. There are certain that some team will take a chance on the 39-year-old veteran.

The Indians have taken Lowe’s spot on the roster for the promotion of Columbus right-hander Corey Kluber, who is scheduled to start against Kansas City on Thursday (today). Kluber has gone 11-7 with a 3.59 ERA in 21 starts for Columbus.

Baltimore Orioles pound Lowe, Indians, 10-2

 

Currently, at the end of July, the Cleveland Indians look more like pretenders, than contenders in the American League Central Division.

The Tribe has been sputtering since June 23. The Indians are 10-14 and has been passed up by the Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers in the up-for-grabs division. The Indians are three games behind the White Sox.

With Derek Lowe on the mound last night, Cleveland did not fare well as a contender. Lowe gave up nine runs in three-plus innings of their 10-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in front of a disappointed crowd of 33,954 at Progressive Field.

The Orioles through the first five innings, pounded the baseball for five doubles, two home runs and led 9-1.

Former Indians’ star Jim Thome had a double, homer and single in going 3 for 5. The lefty-swinging slugger hit a high, deep homer to right for the 610th of his career, tying Sammy Sosa for seventh all-time on the MLB home run list.
