The Tampa Bay Rays promoted top outfield prospect Josh Lowe from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday.

The American League East leaders also reinstated first baseman Ji-Man Choi (left hamstring strain) and right-hander Matt Wisler (right middle finger inflammation) from the 10-day injured list.

Lowe, 23, was Tampa Bay’s first-round pick (13th overall) in 2016 and is batting .282 with 21 homers, 73 RBIs and 24 stolen bases in 98 games this season at Durham.

Choi, 30, has not played since Aug. 22. He is hitting .250 with nine homers and 38 RBIs in 64 games this season.

Wisler, who turns 29 on Sunday, last pitched on Aug. 15. The reliever is 2-3 with one save and a 1.98 ERA in 24 games since joining the Rays in a June 11 trade with the San Francisco Giants.
