Lowe is not starting Tuesday against the Yankees. Lowe has enjoyed a solid month of September in which he's gone 16-for-60 (five XBH) with 13 walks, 11 runs scored and seven RBI. He'll get his first day off since Aug. 28 as Andy Ibanez shifts to first base Tuesday.
Lowe went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run, two walks and two runs scored in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the Astros. Lowe got the scoring started for the Rangers by taking Zack Greinke deep in the first inning for a two-run blast. The 25-year-old would also draw a pair of walks and scored an additional time. The long ball was Lowe's first in September and just his third since he hit two July 1. He's done well in his first year as a starter, slashing .262/.355/.409 with 40 extra-base hits, 67 RBI, 65 runs scored, seven steals and a 71:148 BB:K over 572 plate appearances.
Lowe went 3-for-5 with a triple, a double, one RBI and three runs scored in Wednesday's 8-5 win over Arizona. The first baseman tied the game at 2-2 with his RBI triple in the fourth inning, and he ended up a home run shy of the cycle. Lowe has been productive in his last 18 games, going 24-for-70 (.343) with two homers, eight RBI, 15 runs scored and six doubles in that span. He's slashing .261/.350/.405 across 552 plate appearances this year, his first as an everyday player.
Lowe went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Rockies. Lowe rapped his 14th homer in the second inning to kick off the scoring for the Rangers. The first baseman is raking of late, forging a .386/.404/.636 slash line over the last 11 games.
Lowe will be on the bench Saturday against the Astros. Even with an impressive five-hit performance Tuesday against Cleveland, Lowe is still hitting a poor .259/.300/.376 for the month of August. Andy Ibanez starts at first base in his absence.
