Nate Lowe Being Called Up

Nate Lowe's time in the minors appears to be coming to an end.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic was the first to report that the Tampa Bay Rays will call up the first baseman starting with tonight's matchup in Kansas City against the Royals

The team has since confirmed the callup.

After going from Charlotte to Durham in the 2018 season, Lowe has started off 2019 hitting .300/.444/.543 for the Triple-A Bulls, with eight doubles, three home runs and 14 RBI in 21 games.

He spent most of Spring Training this year with the big league club, and hit one of the longest home runs ever seen at Charlotte Sports Park, on to the roof of the minor-league operations building in right-center. However, he went just 7 for 43 in Grapefruit League games this season, though all seven hits went for extra bases (three doubles and four home runs).

To make room on the active and 40-man rosters for Lowe, the Rays have optioned infielder Christian Arroyo, and designated minor-league pitcher Andrew Moore for assignment.
