The A's will pick up Jed Lowrie's option and plan to keep him as their second baseman next year.

One imagines they might change their mind if a strong trade offer comes in, but the $6 million option is a no-brainer. The 33-year-old Lowrie had the best season of his career this year, finishing with a .277/.360/.448 line in 153 games. It's just the third time in his career that he's played in as many as 100 games, so banking on an encore doesn't seem like a great idea.

Jed Lowrie delivered a two-run double as the Athletics topped the Rangers 5-2 in the season finale on Sunday.

It’s fitting that Lowrie ends his season with yet another double. He’ll finish the year with 49 doubles, the most in Athletics history. He was hoping to get to 50 doubles, but he was left on deck in the ninth inning. The 33-year-old was largely forgotten as a fantasy option coming into 2017, but he arguably had his best season. He’ll finish with a .277/.360/.448 batting line with 14 homers and 69 RBI. It should be an easy call for the A’s to pick up his $6 million club option for 2018, though he could become trade bait.
Oct 1 - 7:34 PM

Jed Lowrie went 3-for-5 with a grand slam and an RBI double to lead the A's past the Tigers 9-8 on Tuesday.

Lowrie's grand slam came off Alex Wilson in the eighth, giving the A's the one-run lead. Those were the final runs of the night. It was Lowrie's 14th homer, leaving him two short of his career. He added to his career high in doubles with his 47th tonight.
Sep 19 - 11:49 PM

Jed Lowrie drew two walks and drove in three runs Monday in the Athletics' defeat of the Tigers.

Lowrie set the tone for the night with an RBI double in the top of the first inning -- the 46th double of the season for the 33-year-old second baseman. He then added a run-scoring sac fly in the top of the third and drew a bases-loaded walk in the top of the fourth. Lowrie has been scorching hot in September and now holds an .808 OPS for the year.
Sep 18 - 11:04 PM

Jed Lowrie went 3-for-4 with a triple, a double and two RBI to lead the A's to a 7-3 win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

The double was his 45th, which matches his career high from his original year in Oakland in 2013. This is just the third time since he debuted in 2008 that he's managed to play 130 games in a season.
Sep 14 - 12:40 AM

Jed Lowrie was 1-for-4 with a run scored, a walk and an RBI in Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Astros on Saturday.

It wasn't all great for Lowrie, as he struck out twice, but the double was his 43rd of the season. He is now just two doubles short of matching his career high set back in 2013, the first season of his first tour of duty in Oakland.
Sep 9 - 8:52 PM

Jed Lowrie went 3-for-4 with two walks and three runs scored Monday against the Angels.

Lowrie reached five times, but he wasn't able to add to his total of 41 doubles on the year. He's really picked it up in the walk department since the All-Star break, posting a 23/27 K/BB ratio in 191 plate appearances. During the first half, he was at 64/32 K/BB in 358 PA.
Sep 4 - 9:10 PM

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-3 with three RBI and a run scored in Saturday's defeat of the Rangers.

He cracked an RBI double in the fifth inning, then drove in two more runs with another double in the sixth. The veteran second baseman is having his best season at the plate since 2013 and he may end up beating that one too. He is now slashing .270/.344/.443 with 12 home runs, 48 RBI and 67 runs scored in 123 games.
Aug 26 - 8:47 PM

Jed Lowrie launched a two-run home run Tuesday in Baltimore.

Boog Powell led off the game with a single and Lowrie followed that with a bomb off Ubaldo Jimenez that hit the top of the fence and went into the seats. It was his lone hit in five trips to the plate, but the veteran infielder has now gone deep in each of the first two games of the series.
Aug 22 - 10:38 PM

Jed Lowrie finished 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a run scored and an RBI in Friday's win against the Orioles.

Lowrie has been hot at the dish lately, picking up five doubles with four RBI over his past three outings. He has raised his average from .264 to .275 just since July 28, going 18-for-50 (.360) with nine doubles and six RBI over the past 13 outings.
Aug 12 - 3:10 AM

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two RBI in Thursday's loss to the Orioles.

Lowrie hit a sacrifice fly in the first inning and an RBI double in the eighth. Those two RBI represented the only run-scoring action in the game by the A's. Overall, the veteran second baseman is hitting .273/.351/.441 with 10 homers and 39 RBI across 410 at-bats.
Aug 11 - 1:23 AM

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Indians.

With the A's already leading 4-0 in the third inning, Lowrie padded out the score with a solo home run. The dinger was his 10th of the season. Prior to that long ball, Lawrie had not exactly been tearing up the stat sheet -- he entered Sunday's contest in a little 0-for-11 skid dating back to before the All-Star break. For the campaign as a whole, the second baseman is hitting .278/.345/.465 with 10 homers, 27 doubles and 33 RBI across 334 at-bats. He is a potential trade candidate at the deadline, with ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reporting earlier on Sunday that the Red Sox have kicked the tires on infielder.
Jul 16 - 7:23 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Red Sox have scouted Jed Lowrie.

The Red Sox have been heavily connected to Todd Frazier, but Crasnick says they're monitoring multiple options as they look to upgrade at third base. Lowrie, whose career began in Boston, has hit .273/.340/.448 with nine homers this season. He's only played second base this season but has plenty of experience at third.
Jul 16 - 2:18 PM

Jed Lowrie (knee) is back in the Athletics' lineup Tuesday.

Lowrie missed the last two games after tweaking his right knee. He's at second base and hitting third against Mike Fiers and the Astros.
