Rays' Brandon Lowe: Starts rehab assignment

Lowe (lower leg) started at second base for the Gulf Coast League Rays against the Orioles on Thursday and logged four innings while going 0-for-2.

Lowe was able to jump back into game action for the first time since July 2, as his recovery has taken much longer than initially anticipated. Lowe will eventually move his rehab assignment up to a higher level of the minors, but he might need to put in a full game in the field first before that comes to pass. Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Lowe will be reevaluated at Tropicana Field on Friday before resuming his rehab assignment Saturday at a to-be-determined minor-league affiliate.
