Brandon Lowe
24-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
2019 Fantasy Outlook
It's difficult to make heads or tails of Lowe. He totaled 28 homers and posted wRC+ marks of 156 and 178 at Double-A and Triple-A, respectively, last season. Lowe was also 13% better than league average, offensively, in his first foray into the major leagues. However, he was relatively old for those levels in the minors and had a 25.7% strikeout rate in the big leagues. Statcast suggests he was a .220-ish hitter. His 77.4% zone-contact rate was way below league average and is a red flag looking ahead to 2019 and beyond. There is some speed here to go along with the pop, and Lowe has shown that he will accept his walks. After the Rays traded Mallex Smith, general manager Erik Neander said publicly that Lowe will be in the mix for a spot on the Opening Day roster, but a starting spot seems unlikely barring multiple injuries in front of him on the depth chart.

Cracks three-run job
2BTampa Bay Rays
May 20, 2019
Lowe went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in a loss to the Yankees on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Lowe's third-inning 421-foot shot, his 10th of the season, erased an early 3-2 deficit for the Rays. The rookie has homered in back-to-back games, and he's now hit safely in four straight contests. Lowe is putting together a strong encore to a dynamic April, hitting .293 thus far in May after generating a .321 average last month.
