Loewen pitched 0.1 innings Friday, giving up a hit and a walk in Triple-A Reno's 8-6 loss to El Paso.

EDGE Analysis

The former fourth overall pick in the 2002 draft is coming off a rocky spring training that saw him give up seven hits, a walk, and four earned runs in 2.2 innings. Loewen pitched 19.1 innings last year and compiled a 6.98 ERA which is not too far off from his career 5.55 ERA he's produced in 183.1 innings between Baltimore and Philadelphia in his major league career. Given the left-hander's poor major league track record, he will likely be relegated to the minors in 2016 but if a Diamondback bullpen member goes down with an injury, he could see a promotion.

Loewen was outrighted off the Phillies' 40-man roster Wednesday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Loewen finds himself off the 40-man roster after posting a 6.98 ERA and 1.91 WHIP in 19.1 innings this season --- by far his worst marks in his four-year career.

Loewen (1-0) got one out in the form of a fifth-inning strikeout to pick up the victory in a 4-3 win over the Mets on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The 31-year old was the beneficiary of an easy win Tuesday, as he happened to be on the mound to close out the fifth inning. Loewen has provided some uneven performances out of the Phillies bullpen, but has settled down some in September. The hard-throwing southpaw has lowered his still-inflated ERA during the month from 9.00 to 7.79, with scoreless appearances in six out of his last eight outings.

Phillies signed OF Adam Loewen to a minor league contract.

Loewen converted from pitcher to outfielder and showed some promise last year in the Blue Jays' minor league system. He was the No. 4 overall pick in 2002.

Blue Jays signed OF Adam Loewen to a minor league contract.

It's not yet clear whether the deal includes an invitation to spring training. Loewen, a pitcher-turned-outfielder, hit just .231/.333/.389 at two different minor league levels for the Mets in 2012. He'll probably wind up serving as organizational depth for the Blue Jays.

No surprises here. Loewen, a pitcher-turned-outfielder, went 11-for-43 in Grapefruit League play.

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News was told by a team source that there's a "99.9 percent" chance that Adam Loewen will soon be sent to minor league camp.

In turn, Mike Baxter is now expected to make the Opening Day roster. Loewen is batting .268 (11-for-41) with a homer and six walks this spring, so he hasn't played all that badly, but he has also struck out 20 times.

Adam Loewen hit his first spring homer Thursday in the loss to the Marlins.

Loewen's homer off Chad Gaudin was wind-aided, but he actually had another blast that was held up by the wind and would have been a second homer otherwise. He's 3-for-8 this spring, and there's a pretty good chance he'll make the Mets if Scott Hairston lands on the disabled list.

Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com writes that both Adam Loewen and Vinny Rottino could make the Opening Day roster if Scott Hairston (oblique) begins the season on the disabled list.

Loewen would function as a left-handed bat off the bench and backup center fielder while Rottino would replace Hairston as a righty bench bat. The Mets would prefer prospect outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis to play every day, so he's likely headed to the minors with the Mets' starting outfield already locked in. It's also possible that the Mets could see which players are cut from other teams as spring training moves along.

Mets signed OF Adam Loewen to a minor league contract.

Lowen, a converted pitcher, hit 17 homers alongside a .306/.377/.508 batting line this year at Triple-A Las Vegas. But he struggled in 32 at-bats in the majors after gaining a September promotion and is unlikely to have an impact for the Metropolitans in 2012.
