Jed Lowrie (calf) went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

Jed Lowrie went 4-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's extra-innings victory over the Yankees.

The second baseman singled in the tying run in the sixth inning and scored the winning run on a Mark Canha single in the 11th. Lowrie entered the game with just two hits in his last 13 at-bats, but he pushed his average from .227 up to .286 with the four-hit night.

Jed Lowrie singled in two runs and walked from the second spot in the order Monday against the White Sox.

Besides maybe prospect Matt Chapman, Lowrie was Oakland's best hitter this spring, coming in at .370/.420/.630 in 46 at-bats. He'll bat second regularly, but he's still not a great option in mixed leagues, since he's not going to hit many homers or steal bases.
Apr 5 - 1:13 AM

Athletics acquired INF Jed Lowrie from the Astros for RHP Brendan McCurry.

Lowrie signed a three-year contract with the Astros last winter, but he's headed back to Oakland after just one season. The 31-year-old got off to a great start in 2015 before suffering a thumb injury in late April and just couldn't get back on track with the bat after returning during the second half. It's unclear what the Athletics have in mind for him, but he's likely to receive regular playing time in 2016.

He's owed $7.5 million in 2016 and $6.5 million in 2017 while his contract includes a $6 million club option or $1 million buyout for 2018. He's yet another moving part for Oakland's infield.
