Mark Lowe Called Up – Pedro Strop Sent Down


The Rangers called up Mark Lowe from Triple-A Round Rock and sent Pedro Strop down to the Express. Both pitchers are right-handed relievers, Strop had a rough outing last night, but Lowe had a horrible start to the season. It will be interesting to see if Lowe has turned a corner.

I’ll have more thoughts on this later, just wanted to get you guys the news before game time. Notes from the official press release follow the jump.

Seattle, WA — The Texas Rangers today announced the right-handed pitcher Mark Lowe has been recalled from Triple-A Round Rock of the Pacific Coast League. Lowe will be in the bullpen for tonight’s game against the Mariners in Seattle.

To make room for Lowe, right-handed pitcher Pedro Strop has been optioned to Round Rock.
