|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|

|Derek Lowe gets first win with four innings of relief|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(4/20/13) Rangers relief pitcher Derek Lowe earned his first win of the season with four scoreless innings of relief in a 5-0 win over the Mariners Saturday, allowing just a base runner on a hit by pitch.
Lowe was summoned in the second inning after starter Nick Tepesch was struck on the wrist by a line drive. He lowered his ERA to 2.35.
|Derek Lowe added to roster|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(3/31/13) The Rangers purchased the contract of pitcher Derek Lowe from Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday.
Lowe, who will serve as the team's long reliever, went 1-0 with a 5.23 ERA in four appearances (three starts) during Cactus League play.
|Derek Lowe to be long reliever|
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(3/26/13) Reliever Derek Lowe will be the Rangers’ long reliever to open the season.
Manager Ron Washington confirmed Lowe has made the roster. Lowe converted to the bullpen with the Yankees last season. In 23 2/3 innings as a reliever, Lowe had a 3.04 ERA and a 3.77 FIP.
|Derek Lowe, Jeff Baker expected to make Rangers' 25-man roster|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/23/13) Pitcher Derek Lowe and infielder/outfielder Jeff Baker are expected to survive the final round of cuts and make the Rangers' roster, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Rangers manager Ron Washington indicated that he's comfortable using Baker at first, second and third and in left and right field. The versatile defender is hitting .423/.464/.558 in 56 plate appearances this spring.
Lowe could be a long reliever and occasional spot starter but has an outside shot of making the rotation. "We’ll see what happens in the next few days," Lowe told the Morning News. "I wanted a chance to compete, and that’s what they’ve given me."
|Derek Lowe may have re-discovered his groove in 2012 after the Yankees converted him to a reliever following his release from the Indians. Lowe was 8-10 with a 5.52 ERA and 1.69 WHIP in 21 starts with Cleveland, but produced a 3.04 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 17 relief appearances with the Yankees. The 39 year-old hadn't made more than one relief appearance in a season since 2001, when he saved 24 games for the Red Sox. He won't be closing games in 2013, so his value will be limited if a team brings him in as a reliever. And if he starts, it may not be pretty, as Lowe has a 4.68 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in the last four seasons, and doesn't strike out enough batters to make up for the bloated ratios. Add it all up, and Lowe should be left undrafted in most formats. (Updated 1/2/13)|
