Jed Lowrie went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs scored in a win over the Red Sox on Saturday.

The homer came off reliever Noe Ramirez in the sixth inning. It was one of four longballs on the day for the Athletics against Red Sox pitching. Lowrie is wielding a surprisingly potent bat this season, batting .278/.350/.456 with six homers, 25 runs scored and 12 RBI through 42 games.
May 20 - 8:24 PM

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

Lowrie struck for a two-run shot against Hector Velazquez in the first inning, his fifth home run of the season. In addition to that quintet of dingers, he owns a .268/.345/.436 triple-slash and has driven in 11 runs across 40 games played.
May 19 - 2:00 AM

Jed Lowrie's second homer of the game was a walkoff shot off Deolis Guerra in the bottom of the 11th to give the A's a 3-2 win over the Angels on Monday.

Lowrie also homered off Ricky Nolasco in the fourth. He doubled his homer total for the season tonight, lifting his OPS to .841. The A's should probably just stick him in some bubblewrap after this one and wait until someone comes along and trades for him.
May 9 - 1:49 AM

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-4 with a home run in Saturday's win over the Astros.

The homer, Lowrie's second of the year, got the A's on the board in the fourth inning. He's now had multiple hits in five of his last nine games, going 14-for-36 (.389) in that span. The good stretch has the 33-year-old's overall numbers up to .306/.368/.459 through 23 games.
Apr 29 - 10:58 PM

Apr 22 - 8:57 PM

Jed Lowrie is out of the Athletics' starting lineup on Wednesday versus the Rangers.

Chad Pinder is starting at second base and batting eighth in the afternoon tilt against Texas left-hander Martin Perez. It's a routine day of rest for Lowrie.

Apr 14 - 5:05 AM

Jed Lowrie finished 3-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Rangers.

After Mike Napoli's solo homer in the bottom of the seventh made it a one-run game, Lowrie's run-scoring double in the eighth provided some more breathing room. The three-hit effort was his second this season and his third multi-hit game in six contests. The 32-year-old is batting .381/.458/.619 through his first 21 at-bats.
Apr 8 - 11:11 PM

Jed Lowrie went 3-for-4 with a homer and a double Tuesday against the Angels.

The A's will take what they can get from Lowrie for however long he remains healthy. The soon-to-be 33-year-old has played as many as 100 games just twice in his big-league career, most recently in 2014. That's fine, though; the A's will want to take a longer look at Joey Wendle or maybe Franklin Barreto at second base later this year. In the meantime, it's Lowrie's job.
Apr 5 - 1:42 AM

Jed Lowrie went 3-for-4, scored one run and drove in two in a spring win over the Reds on Thursday.

He now has a .357 batting average and .900 OPS in 14 at-bats in Cactus League play. He is penciled in as the starter at second base on the Athletics' depth chart. Lowrie hit just .263/.314/.322 with two home runs in 87 games last year.
Mar 9 - 7:04 PM

Jed Lowrie (foot) said Saturday that he's fully healthy and has been running without any issues for months.

Lowrie underwent surgery in August to repair a damaged ligament in his left foot, as well as to remove a bunion and cyst. Lowrie indicated that he feels great and admitted that the foot issue caused him trouble at the plate in 2016. He also had surgery to repair a deviated septum and is now getting better sleep than he has in the past nine years. As long as he's healthy, he'll open the year as the A's starting second baseman.
Feb 18 - 12:40 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Friday that Jed Lowrie (foot) will be his starting second baseman if he's healthy.

Lowrie will be eased into things in spring training after having surgery last August to repair ligament damage in his left foot, as well as to remove a bunion and cyst. However, the skipper added that reports on Lowrie have been good, and he should be fine by Opening Day. Lowrie will turn 33 in April and has batted just .246/.313/.354 with 11 homers over the past two seasons, so while he'll begin 2017 as a starter, he's not an enticing bet for fantasy purposes.
Jan 27 - 1:46 PM

Joe Stiglich of CSNBayArea.com reports that the Athletics have "at least gauged trade interest" in Jed Lowrie.

Finding a taker could prove difficult, as Lowrie is coming off foot surgery and hit just .263/.314/.322 with two homers and 27 RBI over 87 games in 2016. He's turning 33 in April and is owed $6.5 million in 2017 with a $1 million buyout on his $6 million club option for 2018. If the A's were able to unload Lowrie, Joey Wendle and Chad Pinder would likely see time at second base in the short-term. Top prospect Franklin Barreto could be in the mix at some point before the end of 2017.
