Lowe, Teixeira to join Arizona Fall League HOF
NEW YORK -- Right-hander Derek Lowe stood in his new clubhouse at Yankee Stadium on Monday, trying to put his struggles from Cleveland into perspective.

"I've always said that if you're fortunate to play a long time, if you don't struggle, you're probably going to be in the Hall of Fame," Lowe said. "I'm not a Hall of Famer."

The Arizona Fall League proved otherwise on Tuesday, announcing that Lowe, Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira and Rangers manager Ron Washington would be the three newest members of its Hall of Fame. All three are in New York for the Yankees' series with Texas -- a meeting of the top two clubs in the American League.

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and bench coach Tony Pena, as well as Rangers third baseman Michael Young, are already in the AFL's Hall of Fame.

"Our Fall League Hall of Fame roster swells to 31 members as we welcome Mark Teixeira, Derek Lowe and Ron Washington as our 2012 honorees," Fall League director Steve Cobb said in a statement. "Mark and Derek have been remarkably consistent professionals throughout their standout careers, and Ron has become one of the most respected managers in baseball."

Lowe pitched for two seasons in the Fall League -- 1993 and '95, representing the Mariners -- while Teixeira played in 2002 as a Rangers prospect.
