Career Stats
Quick Scouting Report Update: Surprisingly did not get an invite to the auxiliary camp until well into the camp so it’s hard to judge his performance against hitters who had been hitting for some time. Still, he’s a pitchabaility lefty that uses deception for hi 89-92 MPH fastball to play up a bit. Saying that, he’s out performed fellow prospect Keegin Akin at just about every level, but Akin was able to show the ability get major league batters out which bumped him slightly ahead.

Lowther is one of those pitchers that will not wow the scouts, but has struck out 10.5 batters/9 over three minor league season with a crisp 2.26 ERA. Don’t sleep on him as only his lack of opportunity has dropped him a bit behind Kremer and Akin. He could easily surpass both by the end of the next season.
