  • Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Heads to bench

    Lowe will sit Saturday against Boston.

    Lowe has had a poor start to the season, particularly in the power department, as he's hitting .246/.295/.307 with just a single home run through 30 games. He'll hit the bench Saturday with Andy Ibanez getting the nod at first base.

  • Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Sits amid slump

    Lowe is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees.

    With the Rangers concluding a busy weekend in New York with a day game after a doubleheader, Lowe will get a breather for the first time since April 10. Andy Ibanez will step in at first base for Lowe, who could probably benefit from a day to clear his head after going 3-for-37 with 16 strikeouts over his last 10 starts.

  • Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Extends hit streak

    Lowe went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 8-6 win over Seattle.

    Lowe extended his hitting streak to seven games, and he has hit safely in 11 of 12 games to open the season. He also knocked in an insurance run in the ninth inning. The first baseman is slashing .396/.431/.458 with seven RBI and three extra-base hits.

  • Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Remains hot

    Lowe went 2-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Friday's 8-1 win over the Atheltics.

    Lowe's two-run, opposite-field job in the second inning was all the Rangers would need, but the league's third-ranked team scoring offense (5.31 runs per game) piled it on. The blast extended his hitting streak to eight games (15-for-33, 1.092 OPS), and the two hits put the first baseman among the MLB leaders in average, ranking second at .412. There's still a question as to whether Lowe will put up slugging numbers traditionally associated with a first baseman -- his GB% is at a career-high 55.8 through 51 at-bats -- but the 26-year-old has outperformed the team's previous option at first, Ronald Guzman, who failed to take hold despite many opportunities since 2018.

  • Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Sitting versus southpaw

    Lowe is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Lowe is 4-for-9 with three RBI through the first two games of the season but is one of four Texas left-handed hitters taking a seat in the series finale with southpaw Hyun Jin Ryu pitching for Toronto. Andy Ibanez will move to first base Sunday while Charlie Culberson mans the hot corner.

  • Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Penciled in at cleanup

    Lowe is expected to be the Opening Day cleanup hitter, Chris Halicke of SI.com reports.

    The lefty-hitting Lowe is nice fit between two righties -- Mitch Garver and Adolis Garcia. The caveat with that strategy is that the jury is still out on whether Lowe mash like a traditional corner infielder and cleanup hitter. There's untapped potential in the bat, and Lowe has hinted at it during spring games. He's slashing .381/.381/.571 over 21 at-bats across seven games. Lowe's batted third, fourth or fifth in Cactus League contests.

  • Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Crushes 18th homer

    Lowe went 3-for-3 with a solo homer, two runs scored and a walk in Friday's 9-6 loss to Cleveland.

    Lowe singled and scored in the second inning and later added a solo shot in the sixth. Over the last seven games, the lefty slugger has gone 9-for-26 (.346) with three homers and seven runs scored. Lowe is slashing .264/.358/.417 with 45 extra-base hits and 72 RBI this season.

  • Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Homers again in Baltimore

    Lowe went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo homer in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Orioles.

    Lowe made it back-to-back nights with a homer when he took Dillon Tate on a ride out of Camden Yards in the ninth inning. After two middling seasons in Tampa Bay, Lowe broke out this year with the Rangers, knocking in 71 runs (and counting) and playing in nearly every game. Given that he just turned 26 in the middle of the season, the first baseman's career looks like it's on the upswing.

  • Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Clubs homer in win

    Lowe went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, a walk and two total runs scored in Friday's 8-5 win over Baltimore.

    The first baseman opened the scoring with a first-inning blast, his 16th homer of the year and his second through 21 September games. Lowe has maintained a decent .262/.356/.408 slash line through 609 plate appearances this year. He's added 70 RBI, 68 runs scored, seven stolen bases and 23 doubles in a near-everyday role in his first season with the Rangers.

  • Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Launches two-run blast 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.

  • Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Home run shy of cycle Wednesday

    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.

  • Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Perfect night at dish

    Lowe went 5-for-5 with a three-run home run, a double and two runs scored Tuesday against Cleveland.

    The performance marked the third time that Lowe has collected three or more hits in a game this season. The highlight came in the first inning, when he delivered his 13th home run of the campaign. Lowe had been on a tremendous power drought, as he had not homered in his last 40 games dating back to July 1. In that same span, he had collected only eight extra-base hits. For the season, Lowe is hitting .258/.351/.397 with 48 RBI and 52 runs scored across 496 plate appearances.
