Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Gets $7.5 million from Rangers
Lowe signed a one-year, $7.5 million contract with the Rangers on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports.
Lowe's .850 OPS in 2022 looks to be an outlier after he posted a .774 OPS last season, but he's settled in as a strong contributor in runs and RBI while swatting high-teens homers. He earned over a $3 million raise in his second year of arbitration eligibility and will remain under team control through the 2026 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Swats 17th long ball
Lowe went 1-for-4 with a solo home run against the Angels on Monday in a 5-1 win.
After Adolis Garcia and Mitch Garver hit consecutive solo homers in the sixth inning, Lowe made it three straight with his own blast to right field. The long ball was just his second over a 34-game stretch dating back to Aug. 19. Lowe has shown less power with 17 homers this season after slugging a career-high 27 last year, but he's improved his RBI count from 76 to 81 thanks largely to hitting in a much more potent Rangers offense....

Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Goes deep in win
Lowe went 2-for-3 with a walk, a home run, three RBI and an additional run scored in Wednesday's 10-0 win over Toronto.
Lowe helped get the party started with a three-run home run as part of a four-run, fourth inning that broke a scoreless tie. The RBI bumped his season total to a career-high 77, and the homer, his 16th, was his first blast in 23 games. Lowe was dropped to sixth in the order for a second straight game, both against left-handers, as Rangers manager Bruce Bochy navigates a lineup without Adolis Garcia (knee) and Josh Jung (thumb)....

Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Logs rare steal
Lowe went 1-for-3 with two walks and a stolen base in Sunday's 6-5 win over Minnesota.

Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Knocks in two
Lowe went 1-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Monday's 4-3 extra-innings loss to the Diamondbacks.
Lowe put the Rangers on top with a two-run double in the top of the 11th, but Will Smith was unable to hold the lead. The first baseman has hit safely in four consecutive games with two doubles, a home run and four RBI, but his torrid finish to July turned into a meek August. Lowe, who batted .404 over 15 games coming out of the All-Star break, is batting .231 over 19 games during the current month.... See More ... See Less

The first baseman is slashing .280/.373/.454 with 13 long balls, 63 RBI, 72 runs scored and 32 doubles through 115 contests as one of the steadiest hitters in the Rangers' strong lineup....

Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Lifts two-run homer
Lowe went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Marlins.
While Lowe has generally hit well in recent weeks, this was his first homer since July 26.

Rangers' Nathaniel Lowe: Knocks in two
Lowe went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Sunday's 6-5 win over Cleveland.
Lowe delivered the first of three RBI singles in the eighth inning that turned a 5-2 deficit into the winning 6-5 margin. Surprisingly, the potent Rangers lineup, which leads the league in run differential, were 0-and-27 when trailing after seven innings until Sunday's comeback. Earlier in the contest, he drove in Corey Seager for the Rangers' second run. Lowe's power indicators -- home runs and slugging -- are down from his breakout 2022 season, but the first baseman remains a middle-of-the-order bat in a powerful offense.... See More ... See Less

Lowe went 1-for-2 with three walks, a double, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the White Sox.
Lowe returned to the third spot in the order after spending the last two games batting fifth. Texas manager Bruce Bochy said after Monday's game having Josh Jung, who normally bats fifth, serve in the three hole was an experiment against lefties, but the skipper swapped the two again Tuesday against a right-hander. If the manager settles on Lowe being farther down the order, it's not because the first baseman is struggling. Lowe has hit safely in seven of the last eight games, going 10-for-29 with a 1.017 OPS.... See More ... See Less
