Lowe (bruised shin) is still not moving well taking groundballs, and it may be awhile until he is activated off the injured list, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
When he was first placed on the injured list July 4, the thought was that Lowe might only miss the minimum 10 days, but things have dragged on a bit. The Rays won't activate him until he is able to field multiple positions, as they have plenty of depth and could be getting Daniel Robertson (knee) and Matt Duffy (hamstring) back next week. Manager Kevin Cash said it is a bit of a head scratcher that Lowe has been this slow to recover.
Lowe (lower leg) may only need one or two rehab games at High-A Charlotte before activation, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
A report Thursday indicated that manager Kevin Cash had speculated Lowe could be out through next Wednesday, and this latest news more or less lines up with that timeline. Lowe isn't yet ready to head to a rehab assignment, as he's still in the process of building up his workload. "We're still waiting on a couple of other things to work [themselves] out, but each day we're doing more and more stuff," Lowe said. "I'm feeling really good right now, so hopefully it's not much longer."
Despite the fact Lowe (lower leg) continues to make progress, he could remain out through next Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Lowe experienced significant bruising from the ball he fouled off his leg back on July 2 that led to his placement on the injured list. While that's naturally subsided a significant amount, the severity of it was such that it appears increasingly unlikely he returns at any point this weekend. The possibility Lowe's absence extends all the way through the middle of next week came directly from manager Kevin Cash, leaving Lowe's fantasy managers hanging in the balance for the time being.
Manager Kevin Cash is unsure if Lowe (lower leg) will be ready to play by the weekend, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Lowe initially hoped to be back after the 10-day minimum, but he failed to meet that goal and could miss Tampa Bay's entire weekend series with the White Sox. His availability for the weekend should become more clear later in the coming days.
The availability of Lowe (shin) -- who is projected to remain on the 10-day injured list through the weekend series with the Orioles -- for next week's four-game series versus the Yankees remains "in question" according to manager Kevin Cash, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.
Lowe's goal of returning in the minimum time will officially go by the wayside Saturday, and the series versus New York would represent his next opportunity to suit up. As Cash's comments indicate, that possibility remains firmly up in the air, although the fact Lowe may be cleared to resume baseball activities this weekend is reason for some optimism.
Lowe (shin) is not expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list during the Rays' four-game series against the Orioles this weekend, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Lowe's bruised shin cost him the chance to participate in the All-Star Game, though he was originally tracking for a minimum-length stay. The 25-year-old now longer requires the assistance of a walking boot and could resume baseball activities this weekend, even though he won't be activated.
Lowe (shin) continues to progress in his recovery and is aiming to be available for a return to action when first eligible this coming Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The lower leg bruise already cost Lowe participation in the All-Star Game, but he's intent on it not docking him more than the minimum amount required by his injured-list stint. The infielder has taken significant leaps in all aspects of his game during 2019, and it appears he has a chance of quickly resuming his strong season if he remains free of setbacks the remainder of the week.
The Rays placed Lowe (shin) on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Lowe was labeled day-to-day when he initially sustained a bruised right shin in Tuesday's game against the Orioles, but the Rays determined prior to Thursday's series opener with the Yankees that it was best to give the 24-year-old additional time off. The decision to move Lowe to the IL means he won't be able to compete in the All-Star Game next week, though there's optimism he'll be ready to return to action when first eligible July 13. The Rays called up Nate Lowe from Triple-A Durham in a corresponding move, and the expectation is that he'll take over as the team's primary first baseman while both Brandon Lowe and Ji-Man Choi (ankle) are on the shelf.

He was diagnosed with a right lower-leg contusion after fouling a ball off himself in Tuesday's game. Michael Brosseau will start at second base, hitting sixth.
