Time restraints make for quick Lowe warmup
KANSAS CITY -- Indians right-hander Derek Lowe had an unusual warmup session before Friday's start against the Royals.

Because the Royals' home-opening pregame ceremony temporarily resulted in crowded conditions in the Indians' bullpen as people waited to come onto the field, Lowe said he didn't throw his first warmup pitch until 3:03 p.m. CT for the scheduled 3:10 p.m. start.

Working rapidly, Lowe still managed to get in his usual 36 warmup pitches.

"I've played long enough where I understand a warmup is just a warmup, but it was definitely not your normal one," Lowe said.
