    Lowe knocked an RBI single in the sixth inning followed by a two-run double in the eighth to put the Rays ahead. In 15 games since returning from the injured list, the 28-year-old has gone 21-for-60 (.350) with eight extra-base hits and 10 RBI. He improved his season slash line to .258/.328/.472 with 20 extra-base hits through 198 plate appearances.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Crushes homer in win

    Lowe went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Tigers.

    Lowe has multiple hits in three of his last four games, going 7-for-16 in that span. He was a problem for Tigers starter Drew Hutchison on Thursday -- Lowe took the veteran pitcher deep for a two-run blast in the third inning and added an RBI single in the fourth. The 28-year-old infielder is up to a .253/.321/.466 slash line with eight long balls, 19 RBI, 27 runs scored and a stolen base through 193 plate appearances. Lowe has settled in as a strong-side platoon option at second base since returning from a back injury in mid-July.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Sitting against lefty

    Lowe is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Along with Lowe, fellow left-handed-hitting regulars Ji-Man Choi and Luke Raley will take a seat while southpaw Yusei Kikuchi takes the hill for Toronto. Yu Chang will step in at second base as a replacement for Lowe, who went 8-for-38 (.211 average) with four extra-base hits (two home runs, two doubles) over his last 10 games.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Hammers seventh homer

    Lowe went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Guardians.

    Lowe's two-out, two-run blast in the bottom of the first inning staked the Rays to an early lead they wouldn't relinquish. The 28-year-old, who is batting .318 since returning from the injured list July 16, is starting at second base and batting third in Sunday's series finale.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Finds power stroke Monday

    Lowe went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's 5-1 loss to the Orioles.

    The second baseman took Austin Voth deep in the third inning, but it was all the offense the Rays could muster. The long ball was Lowe's sixth of the year and first since coming off the injured list just before the All-Star break, but he's been plenty productive during that time, going 10-for-23 (.435) in his last six games with two doubles, two RBI and five runs in addition to Monday's homer.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Resting Sunday

    Lowe is not in the starting lineup Sunday versus the Royals, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Lowe will get a breather after he went 3-for-9 with an RBI in the first two contests of the series. Yu Chang will take over at second base and bat seventh against Kansas City.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Smacks four hits

    Lowe went 4-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored in a 7-5 win Sunday over Baltimore.

    Lowe doubled in his first two plate appearances against Jordan Lyles and singled in his final two trips to the plate. The 28-year-old has crushed the ball in his two games since returning from a back injury that cost him two months, going 6-for-8 with a walk and four runs scored. After amassing an .870 OPS over the past three seasons, his strong return is a great sign heading into the second half for the Rays and fantasy managers looking for Lowe to repeat his 39-homer production from a year ago.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Excels in return to lineup

    Lowe (back) went 2-for-4 with a walk and three runs scored Saturday in the Rays' 6-4 extra-inning loss to the Orioles.

    After missing the past two months due to a stress reaction in his lower back, Lowe returned from the 60-day injured list Saturday and slotted in as the No. 2 hitter. The 28-year-old made an immediate splash in his return, coming around to score on a pair of wild pitches and on Yandy Diaz's base hit in the 10th inning. The lefty-hitting Lowe could find himself on the bench versus left-handed pitching, but he'll likely maintain a prominent spot in the lineup against righties now that he's healthy again.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Reinstated, starting Saturday

    Lowe (back) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list and is starting Saturday against the Orioles, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Lowe was sidelined since mid-May due to a stress reaction in his lower back, but he'll be available for the Rays' final two games prior to the All-Star break. He's starting at the keystone and batting second Saturday and should serve as the team's primary second baseman now that he's back to full health.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Not yet active

    Lowe (back) won't be activated Friday but could return Saturday or Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Lowe has been out for two months with a stress reaction in his lower back, but he's nearly ready to go after grabbing five hits in five rehab games. Previous reports cited Friday as a potential date for his return, but he'll need at least one or two more days before he's ready to go.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Could be activated Friday

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said that Lowe (back) will remain on his rehab assignment at Triple-A Durham through Thursday before potentially being activated from the 60-day injured list ahead of Friday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Lowe has already played in two games for Durham, going 2-for-4 at the dish between those contests. Since Lowe has been on the shelf for nearly two months with a lower-back stress reaction, the Rays would ideally keep him on the assignment for the entire week to allow him to regain his timing at the plate, but he won't have many more opportunities to play in the minors with the All-Star break approaching. If Lowe makes it back from the IL this weekend, the Rays could be eased back into the lineup at designated hitter rather that has his typical spot at second base.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Rehab delayed after pitch hits head

    Lowe (back) will pause his rehab assignment for at least a day or two after he was hit in the head Thursday, manager Kevin Cash told MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM.

    Lowe has been out since mid-May due to a stress reaction in his lower back and only made it a single plate appearance into his rehab assignment before he was hit by a pitch from fellow rehabber Steven Matz. Per Cash, Lowe has a headache and will sit for at least a brief period, and it's possible his rehab assignment only winds up briefly delayed if he's able to avoid a concussion. The Rays were hoping to get Lowe back shortly after the All-Star break, a timeline which may still be in play.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Rehab could resume Sunday

    Lowe (back/head) is feeling better Friday and could resume his rehab assignment Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Lowe was hit in the head in the first plate appearance of his rehab assignment Thursday and was forced to leave the game. While he dealt with a headache initially, that's since subsided, and it looks as though he's avoided a concussion. He was due for a fairly long rehab assignment anyway, so the minor setback probably won't significantly alter his return date.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Beginning rehab assignment

    Lowe (back) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Lowe was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday but will return to game action at the Triple-A level, which likely represents the final step in his recovery process. Although the 28-year-old is eligible to return to the Rays in mid-July, manager Kevin Cash said Wednesday that he doesn't expect Lowe to be activated until after the All-Star break.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Shifts to 60-day IL

    The Rays transferred Lowe (lower back) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Tuesday.

    Lowe hasn't played since May 15 due to a stress reaction in his lower back and only recently resumed taking batting practice a few days ago, so he wasn't guaranteed to make it back from the IL in fewer than 60 days anyway. The transaction now ensures that Lowe won't be activated until mid-July, and the Rays might prefer to hold out the 27-year-old through the All-Star break even if he's ready to go at the end of the 60-day period. Infielder Yu Chang, whom the Rays claimed off waivers from the Pirates on Tuesday, will take Lowe's spot on the 40-man roster.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Facing live pitching again

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday that Lowe (back) has resumed taking batting practice and is pain-free, but the 27-year-old is still going to need "some time" before he comes off the 10-day injured list, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Lowe has been on the 10-day injured list since May 16 with a stress reaction in his lower back, and though he remains without a definitive target date for his return, the Rays' reluctance to move him to the 60-day IL suggests the expectation is that he'll be activated before mid-July. A clearer timeline could come into focus as Lowe ramps up his workouts and the Rays begin mapping out a rehab assignment for him.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Could start swinging Tuesday

    Manager Kevin Cash said that Lowe (back) has resumed rotational work and could start swinging a bat again Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Lowe looks to be gradually resuming baseball activities after he had his rehab program shut down for a few days when he experienced renewed discomfort in his injured lower back. The 27-year-old has been on the shelf since May 16 and appears to be at least a couple weeks away from returning from the 10-day injured list.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Dealing with renewed discomfort

    Lowe (back) recently experienced discomfort while taking swings and will be shut down until at least Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The 27-year-old recently resumed baseball activities after being shut down for three weeks due to a stress reaction in his lower back, and he's now feeling some discomfort. It's not believed to be a serious concern, though Lowe's rehab program will be put on hold for a few days to see how the injury responds to rest.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Taking swings

    Lowe (back) took dry swings Friday, Brian Hall of MLB.com reports.

    Lowe has been sidelined since May 16 and this marked his first progress of any kind. He'll continue the rehab process, likely moving to tee work next. Lowe's return still appears to be at least a couple of weeks away.
