Out since late June, Lowe closer to returning
OAKLAND -- Mark Lowe, on the disabled list with a strained muscle in his right ribcage, threw long toss on Wednesday for the second straight day without any problem. The next step is to resume throwing off the mound for the first time since he went on the disabled list on June 26.

He said he expects to throw off the mound during the Rangers three-game series against the Angels in Anaheim.

"When you take two weeks off, you've got to do some things to get back into shape," Lowe said. "But right now my arm feels great. I feel like I haven't taken any time off. It feels like I never got hurt."

Lowe could return at some point on the next homestand, but will need one or two outings on a rehab assignment before he is activated. He has pitched in 26 games for the Rangers and has a 2.30 ERA.
