MLB News: The Los Angeles Angels placed pitcher Mark Lowe on the disabled list Saturday as he is suffering from a stiff neck. The 29 year old has spent eight seasons in the majors, tallying a 3.43 earned run average in 39.1 innings pitched last season while striking out 28 hitters. He has struggled in 2013, his first year with the Angels, walking 8 in just 6.1 innings pitched, topping out at a 11.37 ERA. They are expected to call up Tommy Field to take Lowe’s roster spot.
Fantasy Ramifications: Lowe holds no fantasy value as a middle-reliever as his ratio’s are below average and would only hurt, not help your team. Considering that he has only won 8 games in his career, there is very little to peg hope on. Once activated from the DL keep him on the waiver wire. He doesn’t deserve to be owned in the deepest of leagues.
