The Cubs continue to search for low risk pitching options, and now will scout former San Francisco Giant starter Noah Lowry. The soft-tossing lefty always gave the Cubs fits, but hasn’t pitched in the Major Leagues since 2007.

Lowry, 29, suffered from thoracic outlet syndrome (nerve problems in the neck, shoulder, and arm), and now is just hoping to land an incentive-laden one-year deal to prove he can pitch again. When he did pitch, he was acceptably good – posting an ERA right around 4 in his four years with the Giants.

Lowry will throw next Tuesday for interested teams – who will not want to stay very late, as next Tuesday is the premier of the final season of LOST.

    Wasn’t it not to long ago when the cubs were going to trade for this guy? Wasn’t he on their wish list? SIGN HIM!

      Maybe – but it must have been a little while ago, given that he hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2007. The good thing is that Lowry is a soft-tosser, so it is slightly less likely that the arm troubles would be a career ender for him.
