SURPRISE, Ariz. -- With Neftali Feliz fascination taking over the ballpark today, the guy scheduled to pitch last in the split-squad game against Cleveland should be just as intriguing to watch.
"It would be awesome," the hard-throwing right-hander said. "Every reliever would love to do that. I've done it a few times and it's a blast."
Lowe has four saves over five seasons, which is two more saves than Alexi Ogando and Darren O'Day have combined. They're two would-be candidates for the closer job or could be part of a closer committee.
Lowe said he doesn't take the mound thinking about the closer role exclusively. There's no guarantee that Feliz, who saved a rookie-record 40 games last season, will join the starting rotation.
"If I did that, I would almost be disappointed if it didn't happen," Lowe said. "And as far as I'm concerned there is no disappointment when you're wearing a big-league jersey. All I can do is go out and do my best."
