BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 A consummate organizational soldier, Lowery finally broke from the ranks and charged up to Kansas City last year at the end of his eighth professional season. The Royals have shown a lot of faith in Lowery, protecting him on the 40-man roster through injury and mediocre results over the last several years, but his numbers don't inspire much confidence. With options remaining, Lowery will likely be a regular on the shuttle between Omaha and KC.
2005 Listed here only because the Royals chose to add him to their 40-man roster, for reasons not easily discerned from his statistical record. A 3.66 ERA in Wilmington is a reason NOT to add a pitcher to your roster. Sure, he's athletic, throws in the low 90s, and wins points for his work ethic but none of those things were going to get him picked in the Rule 5 Draft.
