Last year--when he still was with the Dodgers--Derek Lowe listed his Mediterranean-style Manhattan Beach home for $5.7 million.

More via the listing: "Prime Walkstreet Location- Stunning Mediterranean Style home filled with top of the line amenities. Easy stroll to sand, strand, ocean and downtown Manhattan Beach." The listing is here.
