Rays manager Kevin Cash said Lowe is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Blue Jays due to his legs being "beat up," Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Lowe will still be available off the bench in a pinch-hitting capacity.

The minor leg injury explains why the lefty-hitting Lowe is on the bench for the series opener in Toronto even with a right-hander (Alek Manoah) on the mound for the opposition. Assuming he's feeling better when he reports to the ballpark Tuesday, Lowe should check back into the Tampa Bay lineup as the Rays take on Toronto right-hander Jose Berrios.
