Lowe to the DL, Shawn Kelley Coming Back


Several sources are reporting that Mark Lowe is headed to the 15 day DL with a herniated disc, and that Shawn Kelley has been recalled from Triple-A Tacoma. This probably shouldn’t be something I’m happy about, but what can I say? Shawn Kelley is awesome. One other positive that ought to come from this is that it could force Don Wakamatsu to start using Brandon League, who is a better pitcher than Mark Lowe, more often in high leverage situations. Either that or he makes Sean White the setup man.

Anyway, nice to see Kelley back, and we can only hope it’ll be Colome getting the boot when Lowe makes his return.

    I don’t know why, but I hate White so much. I don’t even know why, he was a good pitcher last year and this year he’s off to a good start, but I guess it’s just what he represents?

    Anyways, glad to see Kelley back and Happy Clifton Day.

    He really isn’t very good. He had a 4.80 xFIP last year and a 5.63 xFIP so far this year.

    Well, not to say he’s good, he misses no bats and has poor control, but he’s BEEN effective. If that makes sense (ERA).
