Dodgers among the teams looking at Noah Lowry
The Dodgers are among the 14 teams that requested medical records for free agent pitcher Noah Lowry, according to Lowry's agent, Damon Lapa.
Once considered among the top young left-handers in baseball, Lowry hasn't pitched in the majors in the last two seasons because of arm problems that first appeared in the summer of 2007. He underwent two surgeries in 2008, one in the spring on his forearm and another in the fall on his elbow. Lowry was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome last March, which led to him having a rib removed.
Lapa said the latest procedure "relieved every one of his symptoms."
"He's 100% healthy now," Lapa said.
Lowry has been throwing for eight or nine weeks and is now pitching off a mound. He will work out for interested teams in Arizona later this month, and Lapa said his client wouldn't field any contract offers before then.
Lowry, 29, has a career record of 40-31 with a 4.03 earned-run average. He led the Giants with 13 wins in 2005 and 14 in 2007.
