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."
