Brandon Lowe 6yr/$24M (2019)

While similar in dollar amounts to the Carlos Pena contract, Brandon Lowe's contract came at a longer time frame with more commitment. Lowe has only been in the majors since 2018 with this contract starting in 2019 so it is difficult to grade just how good or bad the contract is. However, in his first full season in 2021, Lowe appeared in 149 games and hit 39 home runs with 99 RBIs all while slashing .247/.340/.523. The Rays seem to have their middle infield locked up for the foreseeable future with Lowe at second base and Wander Franco at shortstop.
