Lowe (shoulder) has officially made the Rays' 60-man player pool that will report to summer camp, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. Lowe was expected to be a strong candidate to make the 60-man summer camp roster, and he's now officially confirmed to be in that group of players. The 22-year-old is most likely to eventually be included in the reserve pool of up to 30 players that will continue to train at a separate location once the regular season begins.
Lowe (shoulder) is expected to be a part of Tampa Bay's 60-man roster pool, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The 22-year-old spent 2019 at Double-A Montgomery and seems unlikely to jump straight to the majors after offseason shoulder surgery, but as one of the organization's top prospects it's not a surprise to see he'll likely make the 60-man group for developmental purposes. Lowe had a .252/.341/.442 slash line with 18 home runs, 62 RBI and 30 stolen bases for Montgomery last year.
Lowe underwent right shoulder surgery in November and is in the process of returning to baseball activities, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The surgery was to repair right shoulder debridement. Lowe has already undergone a throwing progression, but he's yet to start hitting and is expected to return around late May. The 22-year-old spent the 2019 season with Double-A Montgomery, hitting .252/.341/.442 with 18 home runs, 70 runs scored and 62 RBI in 519 plate appearances.
Lowe went 3-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs and a walk Sunday in Double-A Montgomery's 7-6 loss to Mississippi. The 21-year-old went yard twice in a game for the first time in his minor-league career, with both of his long balls coming off Braves prospect Joey Wentz. Lowe owns a .321/.418/.661 slash line through his first 15 games in the Southern League and could get the opportunity to join brother Nate at Triple-A Durham in the second half of the campaign.
