The Tampa Bay Rays have placed Brandon Lowe on the injured list with a bruised right shin.

He will not play in next week's All-Star Game and has been replaced on the American League roster by New York Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres.

Lowe is hopeful that he can return to the Rays right after the break. He took the spot of Los Angeles Angels infielder Tommy La Stella as an injury replacement and still plans to attend the All-Star Game in Cleveland.
