Yankees Acquire Derek Lowe
The New York Yankees wasted no time finding another arm to pitch while C.C Sabathia is on the DL with elbow inflammation acquiring the 39 year old Derek Lowe.
Lowe was pitching for the Cleveland Indians before being designated for assignment on Saturday. He wasn’t pitching very well for the Indians in their rotation going 8-10 with a 5.52 ERA. Lowe has however had a good 16 year career going 174-156 with a 4.01 lifetime ERA, and will be able to eat innings for the Yankees.
The Yankees will be using Lowe out of the bullpen in the absence of Sabathia, as David Phelps will be getting the start on Monday which is well deserved. The Yankees have a tough road ahead of them without Sabathia, as Baltimore and Tampa Bay are getting closer in the standings.
