Lowe deal: 2 years, $11 million

While the Tigers move into Day 2 of the Winter Meetings still focused on pitching, their Mark Lowe agreement from Sunday night has some more definition. Assuming there are no issues out of the physical, Lowe will get $11 million over two years, as first reported by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports and later confirmed by an industry source.

It’s less than the three-year, $25 million deal Joakim Soria has agreed to with the Royals (the Tigers offered three years and $24 million). It’s more than the reported 2-year, $10 million deal for Jason Motte to join the Rockies.

Lowe is a fastball-slider guy, almost even split between the 2 according to STATS. mid 90s fastball that maxed at 99 last season.

I would rather have a setup guy that wants to be here as Lowe seems to be vs a guy like Soria that has an emotional tie to KC for just +$333k/year more (3/$24MM vs. 3/$25MM) to be a Royal vs, a Tiger.
