Rays released RHP Mark Lowe.

Mark Lowe is not expected to make the Rays' bullpen.

Lowe has posted an impressive 12/1 K/BB ratio in 10 1/3 innings pitched this spring, but the Rays appear likely to go with Brandon Gomes and Josh Lueke with their final two bullpen spots. The 30-year-old right-hander can opt out of his contract on Friday and is likely to latch on elsewhere quickly.

Rays signed RHP Mark Lowe to a minor league contract.

The deal includes an invitation to spring training. The 30-year-old right-hander struggled with the Angels in 2013, posting a 9.26 ERA, 1.87 WHIP and 7/11 K/BB ratio over 11 2/3 innings. The Rays have had incredible success with bullpen reclamation projects in recent history, so don't be surprised if Lowe cracks the Opening Day bullpen and proves to be effective.
