Source: Rangers not ruling out Lowell
|07.28.10 at 11:37 pm ET|
According to a major league source, the Rangers haven’t ruled out attempting to acquire Red Sox infielder Mike Lowell, although Texas’ interest will most likely depend on how the market unfolds in the days leading into Saturday’s non-waiver trade deadline.
The Rangers have expressed interest in various first base options, such as Florida’s Jorge Cantu, Baltimore’s Ty Wigginton, and Prince Fielder from the Brewers.
Lowell had three more hits while rehabbing with Triple A Pawtucket Wednesday, including his fourth home run in the last two days. The 36-year-old, who could be activated with the Red Sox Friday, is hitting .500 (11-for-22) with four doubles, four homers and 10 RBI in five rehab appearances.
The Tigers’ interest in Lowell diminished with the acquisition of Jhonny Peralta from Cleveland Wednesday. Detroit had been scouting Lowell since the third baseman Brandon Inge suffered a broken hand.
