He cost us $10; even if you discount him by 50%, still a likely keeper.

With that K/W I'd say closer to Yaisel Puig. Remember Puig started his career with an insanely high BABIP.

Peter Golenbock offered up his scouting report to the American Dream League the other day: "This guy is the new Mike Trout, or if not the new Trout the new Tim Salmon." 

I'll take either for my $6 buy.

Finally a warm sun-shiny day in New York and...

Keirmaier homered to right (372 feet)

Adames homered to right (342 feet)

Gardner homered to right (375 feet)

Lowe homered to center (421 feet)

Third inning.

Lowe is the third infielder in the past 4 years that the Patton & Co. site has influenced me to buy. Lowe is off to a fine start, and I have hopes that he, too, will be a three-year Neaux Brainer in the Plain Wheeler Dealer League (AL 5x5, 1991).

The other two: Jose Ramirez bought at $6 in 2016 and Jorge Polanco bought at $5 in 2017. This year, got lucky in the end game and bought Lowe at $3. I am grateful.

Even as a semi-regular, Lowe was a hotly pursued commodity on Sunday in the ADL.

Brandon Lowe (2B) TB - Apr. 1

Lowe went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run with two runs scored in Monday's 7-1 win over Colorado.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: After striking out in the first inning, Lowe was 0-for-10 to start the year before going deep in the fourth inning. Expect the rookie infielder to be an everyday player with Joey Wendle (hamstring) on the IL.

No worries about Super-2 or any of that other stuff when you sign a player with 43 games of service time to a 6 year deal.  If he becomes more than a super utility player the Rays get a great deal.  If he's merely a guy who plays 2-3 positions and 2-3 games a week, it's a fair deal.  Meanwhile, if he gets financial advice, he's taken care of for the rest of his life and his kids (should he have any) will have money too.  $24MM

Someone in my keeper league traded for Lowe at $6 for 2019. I didn't think much of it at the time, but I was just looking at the 2018 thread for Brandon Lowe and saw a suggested price of $8.

He certainly did well in the minors last year - and respectably in the majors, too - but where is he going to play in 2019? Can he play 1b? Tampa has a big hole there. Would the Rays let him DH full time? I don't imagine he's going to beat out Wendle for 2b, Meadows for RF, or Pham for LF, so I'm trying to see how he's going to get enough at bats to justify paying $8 for him.
