    Two days before his true freshman season at Maryland, Brandon Lowe tore his anterior cruciate ligament, causing him to miss the entirety of his freshman season. Lowe returned to field a year later and almost instantly emerged as a top prospect for 2015. As a redshirt freshman, Lowe batted .348/.464/.464, and his batting average and on-base percentage are almost identical this year, but he's slugging more than 100 points higher. With elite pitch recognition skills and a disciplined approach at the plate, Lowe has controlled at-bats for the Terrapins for two years now. He also has plus bat speed and the potential for average power, with the ability to pull the ball out to right-center field. Lowe has a high offensive ceiling, especially for a player who projects to stay up the middle. Lowe doesn't do anything spectacular at second base, but he has adequate foot speed and body control, and can pivot and turn the double play ball. He has fringe-average arm strength, which is plenty to play at second. One potential knock against Lowe would be his lack of track record against high quality pitching, but this season he has raked in the Big 10, which is as good a conference as it has ever been. Lowe is young for the college class, not turning 21 until July.
