Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Rangers are "talking to" free agent right-hander Derek Lowe.

Lowe would presumably be in the running for the final spot in the Rangers' starting rotation if an agreement can be worked out. The 39-year-old right-hander posted a rough 5.11 ERA and 1.62 WHIP in 142 2/3 innings last season but Texas only needs a one- or two-month fill-in.
