Report: Mariners, White Sox, Rangers Interested in Mike Lowell

2,586

After a report surfaced late last month regarding the Angels being interested in acquiring Red Sox infielder Mike Lowell, ESPN is now reporting that the Angels are uninterested.

But a couple of their division rivals now are.

According to the report, the Rangers, Mariners and White Sox are all interested in Lowell's services, yet no offers have been reported.

Lowell, who is hitting .239 with one home run and 10 RBIs in part-time action for the Red Sox, has been limited as of late due to the red-hot David Ortiz. While he feels no bitterness toward the club, he does feel as though he is wasting a spot on the roster by sitting on the bench behind, who he admits, more suitable players.

"I literally eat up a roster spot," Lowell said in May. "I literally do. That's the way it is. The first baseman [Kevin Youkilis] and the third baseman [Adrian Beltre], they're two Gold Glovers. They never get batted for. I refuse to wish injuries to good players. That's so [expletive] terrible. I want to get playing time on my own. It's not good or bad, it's just reality. It's almost verbatim what I said in spring training. I'm not mad about my life. I'm just mad about the fact I put in a lot of work in the offseason to get where I am, and I'm not playing."
