Prospect Spotlight

The Rays’ first-rounder in 2016, Lowe has moved steadily through the system and spent all of 2018 in the Florida State League. A mobile 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds, he’s able to swipe bases and currently lines up in CF. His size gives above-average raw from the left side, though Lowe has struggled to fully tap into that power in games. His swing is fairly stiff and is long to the inside part of the plate and has problems barreling off-speed stuff.  Lowe is athletic for his size but likely can’t stick in CF, projecting to be an above-average defender on an outfield corner. He has shown consistent platoon splits across two pro seasons, and he’ll need to hit lefties better in order to play everyday once he moves away from a center-diamond position. Despite some bumps in the road, Lowe will only be 21 next year and has the raw tools of a FV 50 prospect. Even so, his stock is definitely trending down and he’ll have to improve in a number of areas before being likely to reach that ceiling.
