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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Brandon Lowe: Facing multi-week absence
Lowe said Tuesday that he was diagnosed with a stress reaction in his lower back and won't be available to resume baseball activities for at least three weeks, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Even if Lowe is cleared for baseball activities in the first week of June once he's re-evaluated, he'll more than likely require at least one more week beyond that to regain his conditioning as well as his timing at the plate, so fantasy managers should probably plan on his absence extending until at least mid-June. Tampa Bay called up Isaac Paredes from Triple-A Durham after Lowe was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday, and Paredes and Vidal Brujan could stand to benefit the most from a playing-time perspective while the 27-year-old is on the shelf....

Rays' Brandon Lowe: Officially hits injured list
Lowe (back) hit the injured list as expected Monday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Lowe was left out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Tigers, with reports emerging that a trip to the injured list was considered likely. Whether or not he'll have a shot to return in the minimum 10 days is not yet clear. Isaac Paredes was recalled to take his place on the roster and could spend some time at second base, while Vidal Brujan is also a candidate for an increased role.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Brandon Lowe: Heading to injured list
Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday that Lowe is dealing with a lower-back issue and will likely be placed on the 10-day injured list, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The injury explains why Lowe isn't in the lineup Monday against the Tigers and likely explains why he was scratched for undisclosed reasons ahead of Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays. The severity of the issue isn't yet clear, but the Rays should have more information on that front after Lowe visits a doctor Monday, according to Topkin. The Rays plan to call up Isaac Paredes from Triple-A Durham to replace Lowe on the 26-man active roster, but because Paredes isn't scheduled to arrive in Tampa Bay until Tuesday, the team is expected to wait a day before officially deactivating Lowe....

Rays' Brandon Lowe: Not included in lineup Monday
Lowe is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Tigers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
After being a late scratch ahead of Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Blue Jays due to an unspecified injury or illness, Lowe checked back into the lineup for Sunday's series finale and went 1-for-4 with a run scored. However, Lowe was used as a designated hitter in that contest rather than his usual spot at second base, implying that he wasn't fully healthy. Lowe is back on the bench Monday for the second time in three days, but the Rays haven't suggested he experienced any sort of setback following Sunday's 3-0 win. Even so, fantasy managers in shallower leagues in particular may be enticed to turn to other options this week, especially with the knowledge that Lowe will start in only five games at a maximum....

Rays' Brandon Lowe: Back in action Sunday
Lowe (undisclosed) is starting at designated hitter and leading off Sunday against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
He was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup and no explanation was given for his absence, so it's good to see that it was a minor issue. The fact that he is in as the DH might suggest he is not quite 100 percent.... See More ... See Less

Lowe went 1-for-2 with two walks and a run scored Friday against Seattle.
Lowe was on base four times -- he was also hit by a pitch -- and drew his first free pass since April 23. He also extended his hitting streak to five games with the effort, though all have been one-hit performances and he has only one RBI and three runs scored in that span.

Rays' Brandon Lowe: Smacks two homers
Lowe went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs, two walks and three runs scored Saturday against the Mariners.
Lowe took Marco Gonzales yard in consecutive plate appearances, bringing his homer total to five on the season. Lowe extended his hitting streak to six games with the effort, though this was his first multi-hit effort in that span. He is still having a subpar start to the season, but he has improved his line to .214/.310/.408 to go along with 11 RBI and 18 runs scored across 113 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less

Rays' Brandon Lowe: Sits versus lefty
Lowe is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Randy Arozarena will replace Lowe as the Rays' leadoff hitter, while Vidal Brujan fills in for Lowe at second base.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Brandon Lowe: Belts two-run blast in loss
Lowe went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run during Thursday's 6-3 loss to Oakland. He didn't strikeout or walk.
Lowe registered his third two-hit game and his third home run of the season during Thursday's contest.

After seven games, Lowe is on pace to match his career-high 39-homer, 99-RBI campaign from a year ago.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Brandon Lowe: Scores three runs in win
Lowe went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, a walk and two additional runs during Tuesday's 9-8 win over Oakland in 10 innings.
The 27-year-old hit a leadoff homer during the opening frame and excelled as a table setter the rest of the evening. Lowe was hitless in the first two games of the season but has come alive across the past three contests, going 5-for-13 with two home runs, three RBI and five runs scored.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Brandon Lowe: Launches first home run
Lowe went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in an 8-0 win over the Orioles on Sunday.
Batting leadoff for the second straight day, Lowe picked up his first hit of the year with his second-inning shot that chased Tyler Wells from the game. He later scored on a Wander Franco single in the seventh and finished his day with a pair of strikeouts. Lowe hit leadoff 60 times in 2021, and it looks like he'll continue to own that role against right-handers.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Brandon Lowe: Draws walk in win
Lowe went 0-for-3 with a walk in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Orioles.
After going 0-for-3 with an RBI in Friday's 2-1 win while batting out of the fifth spot in the order against Orioles lefty John Means, Lowe moved into the leadoff role Saturday with a right-hander (Jordan Lyles) on the mound for Baltimore. Though he couldn't take advantage of the favorable matchup Saturday, the lefty-hitting Lowe looks like he'll be used regularly out of the table-setting role versus right-handers, an arrangement that could allow him to make a push for 100-plus runs if health prevails. Lowe scored 97 times across 615 plate appearances in 2021.... See More ... See Less
