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.
