Lowe continues to defy cries of regression, batting .288/.340/.553 with 14 home runs despite a 34% strikeout rate and 64.2% contact rate. The batting average should eventually drop precipitously once a .392 BABIP, and there's still a chance to turn his hot start into a profit. There's still value, however, in a 2B/OF-eligible player who could hit .250 with 15 HRs going forward.

Lowe's surface numbers look great, but eventually high massive strikeout rate is going to come back to haunt him. Perhaps he'll improve as the season goes along, and there's no shame in riding out a hot streak, but neither his current batting average or power pace is very likely to last.
