MLB: Tampa Bay Rays to graduate outfielder Josh Lowe
According to ESPN, the Tampa Bay Rays will recall outfielder Josh Lowe, who is considered one of major league baseball’s top prospects.
The 23-year-old Lowe was a first-round pick for the Rays in 2016 and he was ranked as the 60th best prospect of the majors earlier this year according to the US Network.
The 6-foot-4 is enjoying a brilliant AAA-level campaign in Durham, batting .282, 21 home runs, 73 RBIs and 24 goals stolen in 98 games.
Lowe has patrolled all three outfielder positions at AAA level and it’s hard to predict where he’ll play with the Rays, who already rely on Randy Arozarena, Austin Meadows, Kevin Kiermaier, Manuel Margot, Brett Phillips and Jordan Luplow in the field. outside.
The Rays sit first in the American East section with a 9-1 / 2 lead over the New York Yankees.
