Derek Lowe RP TEX Nov 16 '78

According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the Rockies contacted free agent Derek Lowe recently to discuss the possibility of signing him to a minor league contract.

Lowe told the Colorado front office that he is waiting for a major league contract offer, but perhaps he will grow restless once camp opens. The 39-year-old right-hander posted an ugly 5.11 ERA and 1.62 WHIP in 142 2/3 innings last season between the Indians and Yankees.
