Lowe injures hamstring; status in doubt

Reliever Mark Lowe’s availability for the remainder of the season and possibly post-season is in doubt after he injured his left hamstring before Wednesday’s game with the Athletics.

The Rangers do not know the extent of the injury. But Lowe is being sent back to Dallas to be examined by Dr. Keith Meister. He injured it working out with other relievers before the game.

“We just won’t know how bad it is until he’s examined,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said.

Lowe is 2-3 with a 3.80 ERA in 52 games and was almost assuredly going to be on the post-season roster. Now the Rangers have to wait and see if he will be ready.
