1. Nate Lowe, 1B, Tampa Bay Rays

Lowe should have never been sent down a few weeks ago, but he was because he had options and Ji-Man Choi did not. Now that is not an issue and I would expect Lowe to get more playing time than most other names on this list. He has an above-average hit tool and plus raw power. He is hitting .295 in 123 plate appearances for the Rays and made an immediate impact when he belted a two-run home run on Sunday -- his sixth as a major. He collected 40 extra-base hits including 16 home runs in his time with the Durham Bulls. Choi seems like a really cool dude to be around, but Lowe is the better player and should play as much as possible down the stretch with the chance to provide a solid average and a few home runs.
