Mark Lowe released

A day after telling Mark Lowe that he would not start the season on the Major League roster, the Rays released the veteran right-hander on Wednesday.

Lowe, 33, had a good spring, making seven appearances and allowing one earned run in 10 1/3 innings.

Maddon told reporters on Tuesday that the Rays wanted to give veterans Lowe, Jayson Nix and Wilson Betemit an opportunity to find Major League jobs, which is why they told the trio they would not be with the Rays at the beginning of the season.
