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.

April 19, 2019
Lowe went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 6-4 loss to the Red Sox on Friday.
ANALYSIS
He's been a bit inconsistent, but Lowe has four multi-hit games since April 9. During that stretch, he also has six extra-base hits, including four homers. In large part because of this hot streak, Lowe is slashing .275/.329/.594 with six home runs, 14 RBI and 11 runs in 69 at-bats this season.
