Biographical Information[edit]

Brandon Lowe was the American League Rookie of the Month in April 2019, as he hit .289 with 6 home runs and 17 RBis while playing second base. He had made his major league debut with the Tampa Bay Rays towards the end of the 2018 season, and had barely managed to maintain his rookie eligibility, as he he hit .233 in 43 games. He was considered a top prospect, having been named the Player of the Year in the Florida State League in 2017, when he was with the Charlotte Stone Crabs.

In 2019 he was named to the All-Star team for the first time as a replacement for the injured Tommy La Stella, but had to be replaced himself, by Gleyber Torres, when he bruised a shin by fouling a ball off his leg.

On October 2, 2021, he had the first three-homer game of his career, in a 12-2 demolition of the New York Yankees. That was the Rays' 110th win that season, the first time reaching the century mark in franchise history. His 7 RBIs and 12 total bases that day tied team records. With 39 homers and 99 RBIs for the season, he had one more game to reach two big milestones for the first time, all the more remarkable since he had started the year very slowly. After 53 games on June 2nd, he was hitting just .188 with 9 homers before turning on the jets for the final four months of the regular season.
