Derek Lowe Released By Cleveland Indians

On Friday afternoon, the Cleveland Indians officially announced that the club has released right-handed starting pitcher Derek Lowe. The move comes a little over a week after the 39-year old pitcher was designated for assignment.

Lowe was acquired by the Indians in a trade with the Atlanta Braves last October that sent minor league left-hand reliever Chris Jones the other way.

During his time in Cleveland, Lowe assembled a record of 8-10 with a 5.52 ERA in 119 innings pitched.

After jumping out to a 6-1 start to his year, the aging pitcher began to struggle, especially in the month of July where he amassed a record of 1-4.

Lowe has recorded one win in his last ten starts and has a combined record of 1-7 over that span (in addition to receiving a loss in his last four consecutive starts with the Indians).
