Rangers signed LHP Adam Loewen to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Loewen surrendered 10 earned runs in six innings (eight relief appearances) last season with the Diamondbacks. The left-hander seems doubtful to have a spot in the Rangers' talent-rich bullpen coming out of camp.

Diamondbacks designated LHP Adam Loewen for assignment.

Loewen gets the boot after giving up five runs on three hits and two walks against the Red Sox on Sunday. The 32-year-old will likely clear waivers.

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of LHP Adam Loewen from Triple-A Reno.

The 32-year-old right-hander is ready to make his D'backs debut after going 3-2 with a 3.52 ERA across 34 outings for Reno. Loewen has made 55 career big league appearances with his most recent stint coming with Philadelphia in 2015.

Diamondbacks signed LHP Adam Loewen to a minor league contract.

It's unclear whether he'll be invited to spring training. Loewen made it back to the majors as a pitcher in 2015 after trying things out as a position player for a few years. He struggled for the Phillies, though, posting a 6.98 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 22/17 K/BB ratio across 19 1/3 innings.

Phillies sent LHP Adam Loewen outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Loewen was actually a position player in 2011, but transitioned over to pitcher. While he posted some nice minor league numbers, he struggled in his major league duty this season, pitching to a 6.98 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 22/17 K/BB ratio across 19 1/3 innings.

Phillies purchased the contract of LHP Adam Loewen from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Loewen last appeared in the majors in 2011 as a position player but has returned to the mound and had a really nice year for Lehigh Valley, holding a 2.15 ERA and 60/32 K/BB ratio over 46 innings. The Phillies will utilize him in middle relief.

The Phillies will call up left-hander Adam Loewen from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

Loewen last appeared in the majors in 2011 as a position player with the Blue Jays, but he has since moved back to the mound. Now 31 years old, he has posted a 2.15 ERA and 60/32 K/BB ratio over 46 relief innings this season in Triple-A. It's a cool story.

Adam Loewen has returned to pitching.

Loewen's first six years as a professional were as a pitcher, but he converted to an outfielder after suffering a pair of stress fractures in his pitching elbow. He made it up to the majors in 2011 as an outfielder but has decided his best chance of getting back there is as a pitcher. Now 30, Loewen holds a 3.19 ERA and 67/46 K/BB ratio over 96 innings between High- and Double-A this season in the Phillies' organization. His fastball started out at 84-85 mph when he first returned to the mound, but it now tops out at 92 mph. The southpaw would seem to have a decent chance of making it back to the majors if he can stay healthy.

Phillies signed OF Adam Loewen to a minor league contract.

Loewen converted from pitcher to outfielder and showed some promise last year in the Blue Jays' minor league system. He was the No. 4 overall pick in 2002.
Thu, Apr 17, 2014 09:25:00 AM

Blue Jays signed OF Adam Loewen to a minor league contract.

It's not yet clear whether the deal includes an invitation to spring training. Loewen, a pitcher-turned-outfielder, hit just .231/.333/.389 at two different minor league levels for the Mets in 2012. He'll probably wind up serving as organizational depth for the Blue Jays.

Adam Loewen has been activated from the minor league disabled list.

He's been temporarily assigned to Single-A St. Lucie to get re-acclimated to live action. After that, Loewen will likely be moved back to Triple-A Buffalo where he'll serve as organizational outfield depth for the Mets.
Sat, Jun 30, 2012 05:18:00 PM

Mets reassigned OF Adam Loewen, C Lucas May, OF Matt den Dekker and C Rob Johnson to minor league camp.

No surprises here. Loewen, a pitcher-turned-outfielder, went 11-for-43 in Grapefruit League play.
Thu, Mar 29, 2012 04:45:00 PM

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News was told by a team source that there's a "99.9 percent" chance that Adam Loewen will soon be sent to minor league camp.

In turn, Mike Baxter is now expected to make the Opening Day roster. Loewen is batting .268 (11-for-41) with a homer and six walks this spring, so he hasn't played all that badly, but he has also struck out 20 times.
