A new ‘Geopo Brother’ has appeared in the major leagues. Texas infielder Nate Lowe (28) and Tampa Bay outfielder Josh Lowe (25) are brothers.
His older brother Nate hit 18 home runs in 2020 and 27 last year. His brother Josh is bursting with potential, hitting 11 home runs this season, the third year of his big league debut.
Nate, who recently met with Star News, said, “It’s very gratifying to see my brother’s great performance this season, but it’s not too surprising.” I believed,” he said.안전놀이터
The Lowe brothers entered the pros by being nominated by Tampa Bay side by side in the 2016 Major League Baseball Draft. His younger brother Josh was notable enough to be nominated in the first round (13th overall), while his older brother Nate was the junior in the 13th round (390th overall).
The contract fee was also a heavenly difference. Nate received $100,000 (approximately 132.78 million won), while his younger brother Josh received a whopping $2,597,500 (approximately 3,448.97 million won). The difference in starting was huge. He deserves to be called a ‘dirt spoon’ and a ‘gold spoon’.

But a twist happened. While his older brother Nate debuted in the major leagues first in April 2019, his younger brother Josh barely made it to the big leagues in September 2021, two years too late.
Even after entering the major leagues, the two’s paths diverged. His older brother Nate took root as the team’s first baseman from the 2021 season, when he moved to Texas through a trade, and posted a batting average of 0.264, 18 homers, and 72 RBIs in 157 games that year. Last year, he improved even further with a batting average of 0.302, 27 homers and 76 RBIs.
His younger brother, Josh, on the other hand, spent more time in minor league Triple-A after his big league debut. Last year, he was also sluggish in the major leagues with a batting average of 0.221, 2 home runs and 13 RBIs in 52 games. However, this year, he is finally showing off his skills worthy of a first-round nomination. As of the 3rd (Korean time), he has appeared in 47 games and is recording a batting average of 0.304, 11 homers and 37 RBIs.

Nate said, “I work out with Josh in the offseason, and during the season, we exchange various opinions about baseball.” I told you,” he showed off his friendship.
Since the 2010s, the Geopo brothers representing the major leagues have been Kyle Seager (36, retired) and Corey Seager (29, Texas). Kyle, who was a third baseman, wore only a Seattle uniform from 2011 to 2021 and shot 242 homers in his 11-year career in the big leagues. His younger brother, Corey, is no slouch either. He made his major league debut with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2015, moved to Texas in 2022, and has hit 142 home runs in 9 big league seasons. In particular, last year he hit 33 home runs, a career high.
Regarding this, Nate said, “It is a great pleasure and honor for us to follow in the footsteps of the Seager brothers. Just like they did, our brothers will play in the same game at Tampa Bay in June. My parents are proud of my brothers.” We plan to have a grand party with family and friends in Tampa Bay.” Texas will play three consecutive matches against Tampa Bay next weekend, on the 10th and 12th.
When asked about his goal for the season, Nate said, “There is nothing special. My goal is to finish the season in good health.” I was satisfied. As of the 3rd, Nate has a batting average of 0.
