One thought on “Thursday’s News & Notes”

  1. 2004 7th rounder (out of Golden West Junior College) Marvin Lowrance is being shown as released by the Los Anaheim Angels.

    Marvin spent 7 years in the Nats system before becoming a free agent last winter. Last year he made it to AAA for the Nats for the 1st time, he hit 20 HRs in 2k7 & 2k8, not a speed demon, he doubled his previous season high in SB last year, upping it to 6. A good but not great hitter, after hitting .289 and .292 in Vermont then GCL/Savannah, hit mostly in the .270 range.

    Good luck to him, hope he gets picked up and eventually a cup of coffed in the bigs.
