Jed Lowrie left Sunday's game against the Dodgers with an undisclosed injury.

Jed Lowrie came through with a two-run single in the fifth inning on Friday, providing the Astros with a lead they wouldn't relinquish in a 5-1 victory over the Tigers.

It was his lone hit in four trips to the plate on Friday, but proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Now functioning as the team's starting third baseman, Lowrie is slashing .273/.392/.495 with five homers and 16 RBI on the season.
Aug 14 - 11:29 PM

Jed Lowrie is not in the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

He has been playing nearly everyday at third base since returning from the disabled list, but A.J. Hinch wants to give him a breather and get Luis Valbuena in there on Saturday. Lowrie is hitting .250 (6-for-24) with three doubles and three RBI in seven games since his return.
Aug 8 - 1:47 PM

Astros activated INF Jed Lowrie from the 60-day disabled list.

Lowrie was the Astros' regular shortstop prior to suffering a torn ligament in his right thumb in late April, but he now figures to get the majority of the playing time at third base. Sure enough, he's starting at the hot corner Thursday while Luis Valbuena plays first base. Lowrie was batting .300/.432/.567 with four homers and 10 RBI in 18 games prior to the injury.
Jul 30 - 4:14 PM

Jed Lowrie (thumb) will be activated from the disabled list and return to the Astros lineup on Thursday.

Lowrie will start at third base for the Astros, with Carlos Correa firmly entrenched as the team's starting shortstop. Before landing on the shelf, the 31-year-old was hitting .300/.432/.567 with four homers and 10 RBI in 18 games.

Jed Lowrie (thumb) is set to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Double-A Corpus Christi.

Lowrie has been taking rounds of batting practice without issue since late last week. The 31-year-old underwent surgery in April to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb and Carlos Correa has since taken over at shortstop for Houston. But the switch-hitting Lowrie could work his way into playing time at the hot corner -- stealing some starts from lefty Luis Valbuena -- and he'll be a nice bench piece for the stretch run.
Jul 21 - 4:57 PM

Jed Lowrie (thumb) took batting practice against live pitching on Thursday for the first time since undergoing surgery.

According to reports, everything went as planned, and was a big step towards his return to the Astros lineup. He still isn't quite ready for a minor league rehab assignment, but should be at some point during the week.

Jed Lowrie (thumb) was seen fielding grounders during batting practice on Monday.

Lawrie underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb in late March. He's been progressing in his recovery and is swinging a fungo bat and fielding grounders, but he's still a few weeks out from returning.
Jul 6 - 2:21 PM

Jed Lowrie (thumb) has progressed to swinging a fungo bat.

Lowrie had been swinging a wiffle ball bat. The infielder is two months removed from surgery to repair a torn thumb ligament and remains a few weeks away from a return.
Jun 29 - 7:05 PM

Astros transferred SS Jed Lowrie from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Lowrie is out through the All-Star break following surgery to repair a torn thumb ligament. This moves clears a 40-man roster spot for pitching prospect Lance McCullers, who will make his major league debut on Monday night against the Athletics.
May 18 - 2:58 PM

Jed Lowrie will undergo right thumb surgery on Friday.

Lowrie tore a ligament in his thumb on a slide into home plate on Monday. He's expected to be out through the All-Star break. It's a tough break for the Astros, as the 31-year-old was off to a great start this season. Marwin Gonzalez and Jonathan Villar will fill in at shortstop for now.
Apr 30 - 6:01 PM

Jed Lowrie needs surgery to repair a ligament tear in his right thumb and will be sidelined until after the All-Star break.

It's a major bummer for the Astros, as Lowrie is a big reason why the club has surged to a lead in the American League West. The post- All-Star break timeline is a pretty general one, but perhaps a clearer timetable will be available once he has the operation. Marwin Gonzalez and Jonathan Villar should hold down shortstop while Lowrie is on the shelf.
