Phillies pitcher Kevin Slowey strikes out two in spring training debut


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4:44 pm ET) Phillies starting pitcher Kevin Slowey posted a fairly routine start in Wednesday's win over the Yankees. Slowey pitched two innings, recording two strikeouts and allowing one hit. Slowey is hoping to earn a spot in the Phillies starting rotation after spring training, according to MLB.com.

"In terms of breaking with the club, it's out of my hands," said Slowey. "As long as I've been playing, every year you sort of realize that a little more. You go out there and you do what you can. For me, once I let go of the ball, that's it and I can prepare as best I can, and that's what I've done. The hope and the goal is to show them I can help the Phillies win and leave the decision up to them."


Kevin Slowey willing to start or relieve to make Phillies' roster


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) In his first five years in the Major Leagues, RHP Kevin Slowey had 90 starts in 100 appearances with the Twins. However, in the last two seasons, both with the Marlins, Slowey had just 16 starts, with 21 relief appearances, including coming out of the bullpen in 15 of his 17 games last year.

Now in camp with the Phillies as a non-roster player, Slowey is open to whatever role will help the team.

"I feel like there’s an opportunity here for me to show that I can contribute at the big league level, whether they want me to be a starter or a reliever," Slowey told Philly.com's Jake Kaplan

Slowey was 1-1, with a 5.30 ERA last season.

The Phillies released O'Sullivan after the season. McGuinness earned 34 at-bats with Texas in 2013, but did not play at the major league level last year. Slowey was released by Miami in June after a poor performance.

(6/24/2014) The Marlins have released pitcher Kevin Slowey, the team announced Tuesday.

Kevin Slowey loses on walkoff homer


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Marlins pitcher Kevin Slowey got the team out of a jam in the 12th inning Friday, but got into one of his own shortly after, in a 5-3 loss to the Cubs.

With a runner on second and just one out in the bottom of the 12, Slowey entered the game in relief. He recorded consecutive strikeouts to send the game into the 13th, but that was where the good times ended for him. Slowey allowed a leadoff single to Junior Lake, and then Anthony Rizzo ended the game with a walkoff home run to left.

Friday represents Slowey's first loss of the season, as is now 1-1 with a 5.01 ERA, while mostly working in relief. 


Kevin Slowey earns first win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Despite giving up three hits in the ninth inning, Marlins pitcher Kevin Slowey was able to hold the Phillies scoreless in his one inning of work and earn his first win in his team's 8-5, 10-inning victory Wednesday.

Slowey (1-0) gave up a single to the first batter he faced, though the runner was thrown out trying to stretch the hit into a double. That out proved fortuitous, as Slowey gave up two more singles with two outs but escaped the inning with no damage done. He owns a 4.65 ERA and 21:8 K:BB ratio in 31 innings after stringing together five straight scoreless outings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
