Derek Lowe told the Boston Globe that he's willing to pitch out of the bullpen this season.

Lowe has been marketing himself strictly as a starter this offseason, but has struggled to attract interest in free agency, and recently turned down a minor league deal with the Rockies. While he's still holding out for a guaranteed contract, Lowe has finally realized that his only chance of signing with a team will be as a reliever. The 39-year-old has declined in each of the past two seasons and posted a 5.11 ERA and 1.62 WHIP in 142 2/3 innings between the Indians and Yankees in 2012.
