Tampa Bay Rays starting second baseman Brandon Lowe is likely to be sidelined for at least a month because of a stress reaction in his lower back, the team announced Tuesday. Lowe, who led the Rays with 39 home runs last season, will be shut down for three weeks and then will be reevaluated to see if he can restart baseball activities. The Rays had placed Lowe on the 10-day injured list Monday.

Rays’ Brandon Lowe to be out at least a month due to stress reaction

ST. PETERSBURG — Rays second baseman Brandon Lowe will be out at least a month due to a stress reaction in his low back. The Rays said testing showed the reaction, similar to a bone bruise. Lowe will be held out of all baseball activities for three weeks, then re-evaluated “to determine a potential return to baseball activities and a timeline to return to the lineup.”

Rays' Brandon Lowe Shut Down for at Least 3 Weeks

The Tampa Bay Rays could be without their power-hitting utility man until late June as Brandon Lowe has been shut down from baseball activities for three weeks. Lowe was placed on the 10-day injured list on Monday, and it is clear a day later he will miss much more than just a week and a half. The 27-year-old has been diagnosed with a stress reaction in his lower back, which is not a good problem for a guy who is very much a swing for the fences or strikeout kind of hitter.

Brandon Lowe Placed On IL, Out For Nearly A Month

Absent from the lineup ahead of Monday's game against the Detroit Tigers, many assumed that star second baseman Brandon Lowe was just getting a routine day off. However, as reported by Neil Solondz, Lowe had actually suffered a stress reaction in his back that would cause him to be placed on the 10-day injured list.

Rays' Vidal Brujan: Filling in for Brandon Lowe

Brujan will start at second base and bat fifth in Monday's game against the Tigers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Brujan will stick in the lineup for the fifth time in six games, with three of those starts coming at the keystone. Brandon Lowe should be the Rays' primary option at the keystone moving forward, but he may be dealing with a lingering injury at the moment, given that he'll be out of the lineup Monday for the second time in three days. If Lowe quickly moves past the injury, Brujan would still have a potential path to playing time in right field after Manuel Margot (hamstring) was placed on the injured list Sunday.

Rays' Brandon Lowe: Not included in lineup Monday

Lowe is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Tigers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. After being a late scratch ahead of Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Blue Jays due to an unspecified injury or illness, Lowe checked back into the lineup for Sunday's series finale and went 1-for-4 with a run scored. However, Lowe was used as a designated hitter in that contest rather than his usual spot at second base, implying that he wasn't fully healthy. Lowe is back on the bench Monday for the second time in three days, but the Rays haven't suggested he experienced any sort of setback following Sunday's 3-0 win. Even so, fantasy managers in shallower leagues in particular may be enticed to turn to other options this week, especially with the knowledge that Lowe will start in only five games at a maximum.
