Rangers May Still Be Interested in Mike Lowell?

Months after the initial deal was called off due to injury concerns, the Texas Rangers may still have interest in Red Sox corner infielder Mike Lowell, according to WEEI’s Rob Bradford.

The Rangers aren’t exactly well stocked at first base, with Justin Smoak having been included in the Cliff Lee deal and Chris Davis not producing at all.

Over the offseason, the Red Sox and Rangers discussed a Lowell for Max Ramirez deal, with the Red Sox paying a majority of Lowell’s $12 million salary. While Lowell hasn’t taken advantage of the few opportunities he’s had to showcase himself, the Rangers could look to him as a last option if they can’t find help elsewhere or cheap enough.
