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.

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-4 with a double in Thursday’s loss to the Royals.

Lowrie doubled against Kelvin Herrera in the ninth inning, his third two-bagger to date. He has picked up multiple hits in four of the Athletics’ first 10 games. Through 35 at-bats, he is working on a .286/.366/.457 triple-slash with one home run and four RBI.
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.

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 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.

In addition to surgery on his left foot, Jed Lowrie also recently had an operation for a deviated septum.

"I didn’t think anything of it, and then I saw an ear, nose and throat specialist and it turns out it wasn’t just a deviated septum, there were also two bone spurs," Lowrie said. "My sleep had been messed up for a long time, I realized." The additional surgery doesn't change Lowrie's rehab schedule. He's expected to be ready to go for spring training.

Jed Lowrie will begin the rehab process in two weeks after undergoing successful foot surgery.

Lowrie went under the knife to repair ligament damage in his left foot, as well as to remove a bunion and cyst. While he won't return to action this season, he is expected to make a full recovery by the start of spring training in 2017.

Athletics transferred 2B Jed Lowrie from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Lowrie is done for the season following surgery to repair ligament damage in his left foot. He also had a bunion and cyst removed. This transfer to the 60-day disabled list opens a 40-man roster spot for infield prospect Chad Pinder, who joined the A's on Wednesday.

Jed Lowrie's foot surgery will include a ligament repair and cyst removal.

He's also going to have a bunion removed. The surgery will end Lowrie's season, though he is expected to be recovered by the start of spring training next February. Oakland is calling up prospect Chad Pinder on Wednesday to help carry the load at second base.

Jed Lowrie will undergo surgery to remove a bunion from his left foot.

Lowrie was placed on the disabled list earlier this month and will now miss the remainder of the season. The 32-year-old batted .263/.314/.322 with two homers and 27 RBI over 87 games this season. He's under contract at $6.5 million in 2017.

Jed Lowrie (foot) will see a second specialist before making a decision on whether to undergo surgery.

Lowrie has dealt with a painful bunion on his left for for a while and was finally placed on the disabled list earlier this month. If he does opt for surgery, it would end his season.
