Noah Lowry has problems with his left wrist

Noah Lowry, a left-handed starting pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, has problems with his wrist.He underwent a series of tests that revealed tendonitis Tuesday.

The problem with the wrist has been bothering the player since early in spring training. But it didn’t seem so serious at that time. The current problem made Lowry feel unsettled as he was at the peak of his abilities when the body decided to say “no.”

Lowry will spend the next few days taking anti-inflammatories and wear a splint on his left thumb. And it goes without saying that he will stay away from any training.

Lowry is known as one of the better hitting pitchers in the National League, with a career batting average of .170. When he was called up in September 2003, he hit a double in his first career at bat. In 2005, he hit .271, drove in seven runs, and had six extra base hits in 59 at bats.

Despite a losing season for the Giants in 2007, and a season cut short by a forearm injury, Lowry managed to win a career high 14 games, the most for any pitcher on the Giants staff. He finished the season with a 14-8 record and a 3.92 ERA. On June 8, Lowry played right field in an extra-inning game against the Oakland A's, after backup catcher Eliézer Alfonzo was injured in the 10th inning and no other position players were available off the bench. He became the first pitcher to play in the field since Jason Simontacchi in 2004.

Lowry enters the 2008 season as the number three starter for the Giants. The team named Barry Zito their Opening Day starter in part to ensure Lowry started no lower than third.
