  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Smacks first spring homer

    Lowe went 2-for-2 with a solo home run Thursday in a Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays.

    Lowe is coming off an injury-riddled 2022 season during which he racked up only 266 plate appearances due to a back issue. He's been healthy this spring and has five hits across 15 at-bats, though Thursday's homer was his first extra-base knock. Lowe should be a near everyday player at second base once the regular season begins.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Set for spring debut

    Lowe (back) will serve as Tampa Bay's designated hitter and No. 5 batter in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Lowe looks to be at full strength for spring training after back issues as well as a triceps contusion limited him to just 65 games in 2022. The back concerns may have well played a part in Lowe's downturn in production when he was healthy enough to take the field, as he saw his OPS drop to .691 last season after he posted marks of .850 or better in each of the previous three campaigns. Lowe thus looks like an interesting bounce-back candidate for 2023, and though he'll be making his spring debut at DH, he's eventually expected to settle back into a near-everyday role at second base.

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

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

    Lowe was officially ruled out for the season last week, so his move to the 60-day IL is merely procedural with the Rays needing to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for right-hander Tyler Glasnow (elbow), who will start Wednesday's game in Cleveland. The Rays are hopeful the 28-year-old infielder will be back to 100 percent for spring training, but it's unclear when he might be ready to resume offseason workouts while he recovers from lower-back discomfort.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Won't return in 2022

    Lowe (back) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Lowe has been sidelined with back inflammation since Sept. 12, and he received an injection Tuesday. The Rays hoped that he would be able to return prior to the end of the regular season, but he'll ultimately be held out down the stretch. It's not yet clear whether Lowe's offseason program will be significantly impacted by his injury.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Receives injection Tuesday

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said that Lowe (back) received an injection Tuesday and will be shut down for the next two days, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Cash also said that if all goes well following the injection, the hope is that Lowe can return before the end of the regular season. Lowe hasn't played since Sept. 11 and is eligible to return from the 10-day injured list Thursday.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: MRI reveals inflammation

    Lowe underwent an MRI that showed some inflammation in his back, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Lowe landed on the 10-day injured list with lower-back discomfort Tuesday and will seek additional medical opinions following his updated diagnosis. While a better recovery timetable will likely come into focus once he visits with additional doctors, the Rays hope the 28-year-old will play again this season.
