Yankees acquire Derek Lowe

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Aug 11, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Marc Carig from the Star-Ledger is reporting that the Yankees have acquired Derek Lowe. Looks like he could be the temporary starter in place of Sabathia.

UPDATE, 6:22 p.m.: Lowe will pitch out of the bullpen for the Yankees, which makes David Phelps the almost certain starter on Monday. The Yankees are expected to temporarily call-up Ryota Igarashi to provide a bullpen arm for tomorrow’s game.

UPDATE, 6:25 p.m.: A Yankees source has confirmed that Phelps will start Monday.

UPDATE, 6:40 p.m: Lowe actually had a 3.06 ERA after his start on June 1. At that point he was 7-3 and looking like a valuable part of the Indians rotation. Since June 1, Lowe is 1-7 with an 8.77 ERA, more walks than strikeouts and an opponents’ slash line of .350/.418/.502

    Uh, what?

  2. JM August 11th, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    Derek Lowe?

  3. Ys Guy August 11th, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    sidney ponson and aaron small were both busy….

  4. Bret The Hitman August 11th, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    They are definitely pigeonholing Phelps in the bullpen in 2012. He’s going to be showcased in Winter ball like Noesi. There will be at least one trade in the winter IMHO.

  5. CountryClub August 11th, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    Carig also said tat Lowe still throws enough grounders to be an effective stopgap. I haven’t looked at his numbers, but hopefully that’s true.

  6. Yankee Trader August 11th, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    Here are Lowe’s recent game stats before he was released:

  7. CountryClub August 11th, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    Phelps is starting. Lowe to pen.

  8. Against All Odds August 11th, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    Somewhere Francesa is smiling ear to ear

  9. jmills August 11th, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    Trish, yes , … Derek.

  10. randy l. August 11th, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    “You can never have enough Pitching.

    No kidding.”

    mtu-

    it’s the other way around.

    you can’t ever count on pitchers.

    if the yankees were built around an amazing powerful offense, they would not be so vulnerable when a guy like CC goes down.

    offensive players can get career ending injuries at any time just like pitchers, but it happens much less often with everyday players. every now and then , there’s an albert belle situation, but it happens at about a fourth the times it happens with pitchers.

    any team that builds around pitchers with long contracts, watch out because they will likely become albatrosses around the teams neck.

    much less likely with everyday players.

  11. bruceb August 11th, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    Guess we’re shopping at the dollar store now. Lowe lasted 2.1 innings on his last start against KC.

  12. Yankee Trader August 11th, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    OK Phelps starts, Igarashi up for tomorrow only.

  13. jmills August 11th, 2012 at 6:28 pm

    Gillick said, ” you can never have enough pitching. “

  14. Tar August 11th, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    Phelps for 5, Joba, Boonie, Drob, Sori.

    Lowe goes bye bye without stepping on the field. :wink:

    But all in all not a bad insurance pick-up.

  15. 86w183 August 11th, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    Well that’s a bit of a surprise, isn’t it?

    Lowe is unlikely to do anything particularly useful, but he can go innings should Phelps get smacked around early on Monday.

    I’m with Tar… if Phelps is decent Lowe may be a Yankee for all of 48 hours…. which is plenty.

  16. Joe from Long Island August 11th, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    Lowe is a cheap fill-in. a veteran arm that they can abuse without long term consequence. he is not affecting anyone’s developmental plan.

    it’s a surprise…..but wtf…. no big deal, except to those who want to make it one.

  17. yankfan August 11th, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    LOL crashman reduced to signing lowe

    shows how awful the farm system is, no 1 there to even give one spot start

  18. igotid88 August 11th, 2012 at 7:01 pm

    If they had a day off before CC comes back on the 23rd hopefully. They can use 4 pitchers and have Phelps and Lowe piggyback 2 of our starters.

  19. jackamir August 11th, 2012 at 7:03 pm

    Lowe for insurance is a brilliant move by the organization. Cheap W/ tons of experience in
    meaningful games. His first start will be against the depleted Red Sox at the Stadium. Genius with good theatre. He will be auditioning for next years return to Boston.

  20. rm August 11th, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    You have to admire how the Yankees develop these contingency plans and quickly spring into action when they are needed

  21. ron August 11th, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    Lowe only gets paid the prorated league minimum.
    The move can’t hurt at all,and can only help.

  22. igotid88 August 11th, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    But they don’t have a day off.

  23. Ys Guy August 11th, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    lowe is going to replace whoever they call up from aaa to take cc’s place.

    have fun in batavia derek!

  24. Benny Blanco August 11th, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    Derek Lowe? It’s a complete circus today.

  25. igotid88 August 11th, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    I’m guessing Phelps for 4. Lowe for 3. And Joba for 2.

  26. Benny Blanco August 11th, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    they should have just kept phelps as a freaking starter.

  27. rm August 11th, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    It would be no different is Phelps was the starter instead of Garcia. They would have to strech out Garcia instead and an innings caddy like Lowe would still be required,

  28. jackamir August 11th, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    Rays are playing good ball. They are our biggest threat. 3-0 in the first w/ no outs..

  29. mick August 11th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    mick August 11th, 2012 at 2:27 pm

    guess Phelps could 3-4 innings if CC can’t go on Monday?
    ======================================
    You heard it here 1st:

    mick August 11th, 2012 at 2:27 pm

    guess Phelps could 3-4 innings if CC can’t go on Monday?

  30. Ys Guy August 11th, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    isnt that price pitching for TB?

  31. Ys Guy August 11th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    not only is price pitching well, but james shields has put it together and pitched very well the last month.

  32. mick August 11th, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    so phelps is no longer our bullpen savior?
    lowe the new long man
    joba the new phelps.

  33. tomingeorgia August 11th, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    Lowe is a zero risk. Why not?

  34. mick August 11th, 2012 at 7:34 pm

    Lowe only gets paid the prorated league minimum.
    ==============================
    In addition to what remains of his 15m?

  35. tomingeorgia August 11th, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Mr. mick,
    The Braves and the Indians are on the hook for that.

  36. mick August 11th, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    2/3 paid by the braves.

  37. Ys Guy August 11th, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    johan santana getting cuffed around by the braves. the met’s wheels have really come off the wagon.

  38. tomingeorgia August 11th, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    mick,
    The rest by the Indians.

  39. Against All Odds August 11th, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    :D

  40. mick August 11th, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    santana hasn’t been the same since the no hitter

  41. jackamir August 11th, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    Rangers place Napoli on the DL. One less longball threat to face. He’s got awesome oppo power and he is dangerous at the Stadium.
