Noah Lowry delayed a Tuesday throwing session for major league scouts in Phoenix because he wants more time to get ready for the audition.
That this was done 24-hours before the exhibition probably won't endear Lowry to scouts. He hasn't pitched in a major league game since 2007 due in large part to his battle with thoracic outlet syndrome. Lowry had a 4.03 ERA from 2003-2007 with the Giants, however, and is hoping to prove his health during the throwing session. The Red Sox, Cardinals, Dodgers, Mariners, Cubs, Nationals and Mets were expected to attend, along with a few others. Mon, Feb 1, 2010 04:39:00 PM

The Phillies are sending a representative to Phoenix, Arizona next Tuesday to watch free agent left-hander Noah Lowry throw.

Lowry hasn't pitched in a major league game since 2007 due in large part to his battle with thoracic outlet syndrome. He had a 4.03 ERA from 2003-2007 with the Giants, though, and is hoping to prove his health with a short throwing session. The Red Sox, Cardinals, Dodgers, Mariners, Cubs, Nationals and Mets are also expected to attend, along with a few others.

According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com, free agent left-hander Noah Lowry will hold a private workout for interested teams next Tuesday in Phoenix.

About 15 teams are expected to be in attendance, including the Red Sox, Cardinals, Dodgers, Mariners, Cubs, Nationals and Mets. Lowry, 29, hasn't thrown a pitch in the majors since 2007 due to thoracic outlet syndrome, but had a 4.03 ERA from 2003-2007 with San Francisco. Lowry is looking for an incentive-laden one-year deal before jumping back into free agency next winter.

Updating a previous item, Corey Brock of MLB.com writes that it's "nearly certain" the Padres aren't in on free agent left-hander Noah Lowry.

Brock says the Padres can't afford to miss with their remaining funds being rather scarce. The Padres are seeking durability and dependability in their rotation, two traits that Lowry simply can't offer. The 29-year-old southpaw hasn't appeared in a major league game since the 2007 season.

Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that free agent left-hander Noah Lowry is close to deciding on a team.

He adds that it's "not the Giants," which shouldn't surprise anyone who has followed his medical history over the past couple of seasons. Lowry, 29, hasn't pitched in the majors since 2007 due to various maladies, ranging from his forearm to his rib. For what it's worth, earlier this month, Lowry's agent Damon Lapa indicated that the prospect of his client joining the Padres "would not be a difficult sell."

Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that the Padres are one of several teams who have shown interest and requested medical records on free agent left-hander Noah Lowry.

Lowry, 29, hasn't pitched in the majors since 2007 due to various maladies, ranging from his forearm to his rib. According to his agent Damon Lapa, Lowry will throw for teams in a private audition later this month in Arizona. "I think it's safe to say Noah would be open to the possibility of pitching for the Padres," Lapa said. "... San Diego would not be a difficult sell for us." The Dodgers, Pirates and Reds have also surfaced as possibilities for the southpaw, but PETCO Park would be a fine place to attempt a comeback.

The Dodgers have requested medical records on left-hander Noah Lowry, according to agent Damon Lapa

The 29-year-old missed 2008 and 2009 with arm and rib troubles, but is finally ready to contribute again. Before being hurt he was an intriguing mid-rotation starter albeit with some endurance issues. Lowry has been linked to a litany of other teams including the Reds and Pirates.

The Reds are among the teams with interest in free agent left-hander Noah Lowry, reports Mark Sheldon of MLB.com.

The Pirates and a few others have also shown interest in the 29-year-old Lowry. He missed all of 2008 and 2009 with various arm issues, but is better now and ready to contribute. "If he's healthy, yeah," GM Walt Jocketty said of his club's interest. Teams are obviously hoping he'll come cheap.

Lowry, 29, went 14-8 with a 3.92 ERA in 2007, his last healthy season. Since then he's battled multiple elbow and forearm issues. The lefty is an ideal high-risk, high-reward signing and should fit into the Bucs' financial plans. The Rockies have also expressed some preliminary interest.

The Giants issued a statement Tuesday night in response to accusations that the club's medical staff misdiagnosed Noah Lowry's forearm injury.

Lowry's agent, Damon Lapa, made the accusations Tuesday morning. "The Giants organization and its medical staff have always treated Noah Lowry's condition appropriately and with the utmost care.," read the club's statement. "We have never performed any medically inappropriate procedures on Mr. Lowry. ... We can state that Mr. Lapa's accusations against our organization are factually inaccurate, intentionally misleading and irresponsible."

Noah Lowry's agent, Damon Lapa, has accused the Giants' medical staff of misdiagnosing his client's forearm injury in 2008.

"Not only did they perform the wrong surgery, but Noah did the wrong rehab along with it, and he's basically been spinning his wheels for the last six to eight months," Lapa said. "Quite honestly, there's a sense of relief. Dr. Andrews and Dr. Pearl have been able to provide answers that the Giants have not been able to provide... The two doctors have confirmed the condition and let us know that it's existed since 2007 and essentially been misdiagnosed." Lowry is set undergo the correct procedure later this week.

Noah Lowry is scheduled to undergo surgery this week to have a rib removed from his left side.

Lowry is not expected to pitch again this season. He struggled mightily while trying to rehab a shoulder injury and eventually incurred the rib issue. Lowry has a $6.25 million option for 2010 that probably won't get picked up.

Giants placed LHP Noah Lowry on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 27, with a strained left shoulder.

Lowry could resume throwing soon, but he's still at least a couple of weeks away from working in games and he'll probably spend a full month rehabbing in the minors. He could be a nonfactor again this year.
