Buzz: Rangers No Longer Interested in Mike Lowell

Yesterday, Rangers GM Jon Daniels appeared as a guest of Jim Bowden on XM Radio, and Daniels told Bowden their waiver claim of Ryan Garko ended their interest in acquiring Mike Lowell from the Red Sox.

…given the Mets issues at first base, and Lowell’s familiarity with Jason Bay and playing in the northeast, it seems like he would be a good fit for the Mets right now…i think there are too many questions regarding Lowell, his health, and his ability to play first base for a long period of time…

Lowell is coming off of off-season surgery on his hand, and has played in just eight games this Spring, going 6 for 20 with a double and an RBI with four strikeouts.
