MLB Rumors: Tampa Bay Rays Infielder Becoming Trade Candidate

The Tampa Bay Rays have become quite famous for trading away players. This is a trend that we could very well see again before the season starts, as there are rumblings that Tampa Bay is willing to hear offers for Brandon Lowe.

After hitting an impressive 39 home runs for the Rays in 2021, Lowe took a step in the wrong direction in 2023. In 65 games, he had just eight home runs to go along with a low .221 batting average. Needless to say, it was a year to forget for him, and it could be a reason why the Rays are now considering moving him. 

There definitely could be teams willing to take a chance on Lowe when noting how impressive he was in 2021. Teams looking for an upgrade at second base should consider bringing him in from here.
