Mark Lowe Likes Surgeries With 'Micro' In The Name

Per Larry Stone, Mark Lowe is undergoing back surgery called microdiscectomy on June 15th. Do not expect to see him this season.

Jeff's note: You shouldn't be too surprised. Lowe's injury was downplayed for some reason at the beginning, but Mark Lowe had a herniated disc, and herniated discs are kind of a big deal. Russell Branyan had a herniated disc. Brian Roberts has a herniated disc. Though no two injuries are alike, herniated discs generally don't get better very fast. They suck, and sometimes - as is the case here - they end up needing surgery.

Needless to say, the bullpen is another one of those things that we thought would be fine, but that hasn't been fine.
