Astros apparently on hand to check out Noah Lowry

According to Jerry Crasnick, the Astros are one of 10-15 teams that will be on hand to check out pitcher Noah Lowry next week in Phoenix. He hasn't thrown in the majors since 2007.

The others are: Red Sox, Reds, Dodgers, Cardinals, Nationals, Mariners, Cubs, Braves & Mets (of course the Mets are interested. If you can throw two pitches, with a fastball over 84mph, please send your resume to Omar Minaya.)

Blech. This guy is worse than Russ Ortiz. Hasn't pitched since 2007, and his strikeout/walk ratio over his last two major league seasons? 1.25. He puts the ball in play, too, and he doesn't even get very many groundballs.

Wait. So what makes him a problem for the Astros...?
