Ken Rosenthal announced that the Rays have called up 1B Nate Lowe to the show.

Nate Lowe was selected by the Rays in the 13th round of the 2016 draft out of Mississippi State. Since then he has ascended quickly through the minors, most recently posting a .300/.444/.543 slash line in Triple-A Durham, good for a 156 wRC+ in 90 PA. Nate Lowe is currently ranked at Tampa Bay’s #8 prospect according to MLB.com

Update 4/29/19: Marc Topkin has announced that 3B Christian Arroyo has been optioned to Triple-A Durham as the corresponding move, and DFA Andrew Moore to make room for Nate Lowe on the 40-man.
