Lowe is not a member of the Rays' ALDS roster. Lowe recorded a solid .263/.325/.454 slash line in his 50-game debut this season. The Rays seem to be prioritizing defensive flexibility with their bench options, leaving Ji-Man Choi as the only left-handed first baseman on the roster.
Lowe went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and two runs in a win over the Blue Jays on Friday. Lowe made some solid contributions from the latter half of the order in the postseason-clinching win, churning out his first multi-hit effort since Sept. 1 in the process. The rookie has only three extra-base hits during the month when factoring in Friday's two-bagger, but his season line remains a solid .272/.335/.469 (164 plate appearances) heading into the final pair of regular-season contests.
Lowe went 1-for-5 with a game-winning two-run home run in an extra-innings victory over the Red Sox on Saturday. The rookie came through in dramatic fashion, as his 338-foot shot to left with Johnny Davis aboard in the bottom of the 11th erased a 4-3 deficit and won another critical game for the Rays. The round tripper was a rare taste of offensive success for Lowe in September, as he's still hitting just .184 (7-for-38) for the month and has struck out on 17 occasions over 39 plate appearances.
Lowe will play third and hit third in Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, according to Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network. Lowe started just three games at third base in the minor leagues, but that did not stop manager Kevin Cash from giving him the nod there for the first time in the majors. Lowe will look to get on track at the plate Wednesday after going just 5-for-29 (.172) over his first 12 games of the month.
Lowe went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a walk in the Rays' 8-2 win over the Indians on Sunday. Lowe drew the start at DH after being called up earlier Sunday and did not disappoint, as his two-run bomb in the fourth inning proved to be the game-winning RBI. He was kept in the minors longer than his performance dictated because the Rays did not want to designate Ji-Man Choi or Jesus Aguilar for assignment, but now that rosters have expanded, Lowe should be in the lineup more often than not.
