Lowe makes the team
The Rangers have told veteran pitcher Derek Lowe that he is on the team. Lowe will be used in middle relief and possibly as a spot starter. He joins a bullpen that alrready includes Joe Nathan, Robbie Ross and Jason Frasor.
Michael Kirkman will also be in the bullpen unless the Rangers decide to use him in the rotation. But manager Ron Washington said Kirkman is in the bullpen right now.
