Rangers' Nate Lowe: Goes deep in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Mariners.

Lowe launched his seventh homer in the third inning, a 451-foot shot to center field, the longest by a Rangers hitter in the short existence of Globe Life Field. He's hit safely in 12 of the last 14 games (17-for-54, .854 OPS) and leads the team with 25 RBI.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Shows off wheels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe went 2-for-5 with a double, a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's 6-5 loss to the Twins.

Lowe's not known for his speed, but he's now stolen bases in back-to-back games and is up to four thefts in 2021. He had one steal in the majors prior to this season and four across four minor-league seasons.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Hits with RISP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's 8-6 win over Boston.

Lowe delivered a two-out, two-run single in the third inning, upping his RBI total to 24, second in MLB. He's been money with runners in scoring position, batting .462 (12-for-26) in those situations. He is also hitting .395 with two outs in an inning.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Reaches base three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe went 2-for-3 with a walk and an RBI on Wednesday against the Angels.

Lowe drove in a run in the first inning on an infield hit. That extended his hitting streak to five games, and his knock later in the contest gave him three multi-hit efforts in his last six starts. Lowe has thrived with everyday playing time to this point, hitting .280/.368/.505 with six home runs, 11 runs scored and 22 RBI across 106 plate appearances.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Goes yard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run during Monday's loss to the Angels.

Lowe got the Rangers on the board with a three-run long ball against Shohei Ohtani in the first inning. He also singled in the eighth. The 25-year-old now leads the Rangers with six home runs and 21 RBI while batting .267/.357/.512.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Swats fifth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe went 2-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Angels.

He hit back-to-back jacks with Adolis Garcia in the eighth inning, giving the Rangers a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Lowe has had a solid start in Texas after an offseason trade from Tampa Bay, hitting .254 (18-for-71) through 19 games with five homers and 17 RBI.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Hits walkoff single
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and a walk in Sunday's 1-0 extra-inning win over the Orioles.

Lowe came up to bat with two outs and the bases loaded in the 10th inning, and he delivered a single to score Eli White for the game's lone run. The 25-year-old Lowe is now batting .230 with four homers, 16 RBI, seven runs scored and two stolen bases in 16 contests.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Snaps out of slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Rays.

Lowe smacked three home runs in his first five games with the Rangers, but he collected just one hit in his next 21 at-bats prior to the Wednesday's game. He snapped that cold spell by crushing a leadoff homer in the second inning for his fourth long ball of the season. Lowe also missed a golden opportunity for more production four frames later by grounding into a double play with the bases loaded and no outs. Through 50 plate appearances this season, Lowe is hitting .239/.300/.522 with four home runs, 15 RBI and six runs scored. However, to maintain that level of production, he'll need to cut back on his 36 percent strikeout rate.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Records stolen base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe went 0-for-4 with a stolen base in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Blue Jays.

Lowe got aboard on a fielder's choice in the eighth inning and stole second, although he didn't come around to score. The first baseman is off to a productive start in 2021 with three homers, 14 RBI and four runs scored in six games. His steal Wednesday was just the second of his career, and he's yet to record more than one swiped bag per year at any level of professional baseball. Lowe's lack of speed can likely be overlooked by most fantasy managers if he can keep up his frequent contributions at the plate.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Stays hot with pair of homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe went 2-for-3 with two home runs, a walk and four RBI in Tuesday's victory over the Blue Jays.

Lowe got Texas on the board with a two-run shot in the first inning and slugged another two-run homer in the third. The 25-year-old has gotten off to a fantastic start to the 2021 season, collecting at least one hit and RBI in each of his five contests thus far. Lowe is slashing .381/.409/.857 and leads all of baseball with 14 RBI.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Extends RBI streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe went 1-for-4 with an RBI in Monday's 6-2 loss to Toronto.

Lowe turned around a sluggish spring in a hurry once the regular season started. He's driven in at least one run in all four of the Rangers' games to open the campaign, and with 10 RBI in total, he currently leads the majors in that category.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Mashes three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Royals.

Lowe opened the scoring with his third-inning homer. It was his first long ball of the season. The 25-year-old worked as the designated hitter Sunday, but he's also the Rangers' primary first baseman to begin the year. Lowe went 5-for-14 (.357) with a homer, nine RBI and two runs scored in the three-game series against the Royals. He also struck out five times and didn't draw a walk. Plate discipline could be a factor later in the year if he starts to slump.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Rewards manager's patience
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe went 2-for-6 with a double, four RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 14-10 loss to the Royals.

Lowe, acquired from Tampa Bay in the offseason to be Texas' starting first baseman, fought off a challenge from Ronald Guzman in spring training. Rangers manager Chris Woodward stood by Lowe, who batted a mere .205 and struck out 15 times in 44 at-bats, and the manager's faith was rewarded Opening Day. Lowe slotted in fifth in the batting order, a potentially good spot for RBI opportunities.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Wins starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe was named the Rangers' starting first baseman Saturday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Lowe's top competitor, Ronald Guzman, has also made the team, but he isn't expected to play regularly at first base. Lowe could potentially thrive with regular at-bats, something he wasn't able to earn in the past two seasons with the Rays. His .215/.322/.447 slash line through his first 71 big-league games is decent, though his 31.8 percent strikeout rate is high for a player who's only shown modest power.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Breaks out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in Saturday's spring game against Seattle.

Lowe entered Saturday's game batting just .160 this spring, which has opened the door to Ronald Guzman usurping the starting first-base job that was seen as Lowe's to lose when spring training started. Texas manager Chris Woodward still believes in Lowe, telling Kennedi Landry of MLB.com he has confidence in him. "I know he hasn't had a ton of results, but it's just the way this guy works and carries himself. I felt it was kind of a matter of time," Woodward said. "It's nice to see him get some results today." As for Guzman, he launched his third spring home run Friday and has a 1.203 OPS compared to Lowe's .687.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Hitless Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe started at first base and went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Sunday's spring game against the Dodgers.

Lowe is the presumed starter at first base after the Rangers acquired him from Tampa Bay during the offseason, but he's fallen behind Ronald Guzman in terms of spring production. Lowe is 1-for-9 (hitless in last eight ABs) with five strikeouts, while Guzman is 4-for-7 with two home runs, two RBI and two walks. Kennedi Landry of MLB.com has gone as far as projecting Guzman as the Opening Day starter at first base.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Could play third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Texas manager Chris Woodward said it's possible that both Lowe and Ronald Guzman make the Opening Day roster, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

When the Rangers acquired Lowe, it was presumed the organization was moving on from Guzman. However, that was before Guzman earned MVP honors in the Dominican Winter League. Woodward said there's a world where both first basemen can break camp with the Rangers, but that would mean both have a strong spring training. In that event, the Rangers could use Lowe at third base, where he's appeared six times for Tampa Bay and another five times while in the minors.

Rangers' Nate Lowe: Traded to Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe was traded from the Rays to the Rangers on Thursday in exchange for outfielder Heriberto Hernandez and other prospects, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Lowe spent the final month of the regular season in the majors, slashing .224/.316/.433 with four home runs and 11 RBI over 21 games. However, he was left off the Rays' roster for the entirety of the postseason. The 25-year-old should have the chance to serve as the Rangers' starting first baseman heading into 2021, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Rays' Nate Lowe: Cast off ALDS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays removed Lowe from their 28-man roster for their American League Division Series with the Yankees that begins Monday in San Diego, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Lowe still retains a spot in the Rays' 40-man player pool for the postseason, so he could be a candidate to return to the active roster for the ALCS, should Tampa Bay advance past the Yankees. During the Rays' wild-card series win over the Blue Jays, Lowe went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Tampa Bay's Game 1 victory before sitting out Game 2. He'll be replaced on the ALDS roster by Austin Meadows (oblique), who appears to be nearing a return to game action.

Rays' Nate Lowe: Sitting against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowe is out of the lineup Wednesday for Game 2 of the Rays' wild-card series with the Blue Jays, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

After finishing the regular season as the Rays' primary option at first base, Lowe started at the position Tuesday in Game 1, going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts. With a southpaw (Hyun-Jin Ryu) on the mound for Toronto in Game 2, the lefty-hitting Lowe will cede his spot in the lineup to Mike Brosseau. Lowe won't necessarily be a lock to make regular starts against right-handed pitching during the postseason, however, as the Rays recently welcomed back another challenger for strong-side platoon duties at first base in Ji-Man Choi (hamstring).
