Lowe isn't starting Wednesday against the Giants. Lowe will get a breather after he went 3-for-15 with a run, an RBI and four strikeouts across the last four games. Charlie Culberson will start at first base and bat seventh.
Lowe is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies. Lowe's first time out of the lineup all season will unfortunately come at Coors Field. His .246/.354/.396 season slash line isn't anything special for a first baseman, but his job remains very safe with Ronald Guzman out for the year following knee surgery. Charlie Culberson will get the nod at first base Thursday.
Lowe went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 9-8 loss to the Angels. Lowe's two-run blast, his first homer in 17 games, was part of a five-run uprising in the eighth inning. Earlier, a single extended his hitting streak to five games (8-for-21). His .265/.364/.739 line indicates a competent hitter, although it remains to be seen if the 25-year-old will develop the kind of power associated with a corner infielder at the major-league level.
Lowe went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Mariners. Lowe launched his seventh homer in the third inning, a 451-foot shot to center field, the longest by a Rangers hitter in the short existence of Globe Life Field. He's hit safely in 12 of the last 14 games (17-for-54, .854 OPS) and leads the team with 25 RBI.
Lowe went 2-for-5 with a double, a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's 6-5 loss to the Twins. Lowe's not known for his speed, but he's now stolen bases in back-to-back games and is up to four thefts in 2021. He had one steal in the majors prior to this season and four across four minor-league seasons.
