Kiermaier was a first-time attendee at the Rays' informal Tropicana Field workouts Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Getting BP in during shutdown
Lowe is getting regular batting practice in at home while spring training remains suspended with the help of his wife Madison, a former college softball player, Karen Loftus of WFLA-TV reports. "I thank God every day to have someone that understands everything that I'm going through on a daily basis and to have someone that I can confide in and stuff like that," Lowe said.
