Here’s the Lowe-down

Talked to Mark Lowe after the team’s workout finished a few minutes ago and it seems the only hold-up now is doctors trying to figure out how best to treat the scar tissue in his elbow. The options are either for Lowe to have arthroscopic surgery of “go more aggressvie with my rehab.”
If the surgery is done, Lowe would be sidelined at least two or three more weeks before he can start a throwing program. The pitcher is still predicting a June return to the field, though, and doing his best to remain optimistic. “It was good news,” he said of the fact is was only scar tissue found. “The only better news would have been that everything was perfect.”
Lowe expects to hear by tomorrow what the plan is.
Sean Green finally got back out there after missing a week with hamstring tightness on his landing leg. Green threw a bullpen session of about 30 pitches, mixing in all his stuff. “It felt great,” he told me. “When it first happened, I thought it would be a one-day thing, but you never know with hamstrings.”
Off to go chat with Hargrove. See you all soon.
