It's a routine day off. Arismendy Alcantara is getting a start at second base.
Jun 26 - 12:44 PM

Jed Lowrie is in the lineup and batting fifth for Wednesday's game against the Mariners.

Lowrie was just activated off the disabled list on Wednesday. He missed 15 days on the nose with a bruised right shin. Back in action now, the veteran infielder returns to a .302/.341/.345 triple-slash. He accumulated those numbers through 32 games.

Athletics activated 2B Jed Lowrie from the 15-day disabled list.

May 25 - 1:03 PM

Jed Lowrie (shin) took part in all baseball activities on Thursday.

Lowrie went on the disabled list with a bruised shin last week but is already on the mend. It looks like he's close to beginning a rehab assignment. Lowrie should be activated on May 25, the first day he's eligible to come off the DL.
May 19 - 7:52 PM

Jed Lowrie (shin) is aiming to come off the disabled list when first eligible May 25.

Lowrie began hitting over the weekend and resumed running this week, so he would seem to be on track to meet that goal. The second baseman has been on the disabled list since May 11 with a nasty right shin contusion. He was batting .302/.341/.345 with 17 RBI over his first 32 games this season for Oakland.
May 18 - 2:02 PM

Jed Lowrie (shin) hit off a tee on Saturday.

He's not running yet, but that should be around the corner. Lowrie has missed the last week of action with a bruised shin but could be ready to return when eligible on May 25 or shorty after.
May 15 - 11:29 AM

Jed Lowrie (shin) is off crutches and out of a walking boot.

Lowrie needed both after suffering a right shin contusion Monday, but he's making progress toward a return. He's still unable to do any baseball activity, though, which will obviously be a big indicator of his readiness to return when first eligible May 25. The A's remain optimistic.
May 14 - 10:02 AM

Jed Lowrie (shin) will not resume baseball activity for another nine or 10 days.

Lowrie suffered a right shin contusion after taking a foul tip to the lower leg against the Red Sox on Monday. While manager Bob Melvin expressed his hope that Lowrie would be able to play on Wednesday, the second baseman is still on crutches and the team ultimately placed him on the 15-day disabled list. He is tentatively set to begin taking part in baseball activities in nine or 10 days.
May 11 - 5:20 PM

Athletics placed 2B Jed Lowrie on the 15-day disabled list with a right shin contusion.

Lowrie took a hard foul tip off his shin in the seventh inning Monday and was still unable to walk without a limp by Wednesday, so the A's decided to just go ahead and give him two weeks of rest. He should be ready for activation as soon as he's eligible. Chris Coghlan started at second base Tuesday night against the Red Sox.
May 11 - 12:36 PM

A's manager Bob Melvin said he's hopeful Jed Lowrie (foot) is able to play Wednesday.

Lowrie took a foul tip off his right foot in the seventh inning Monday. X-rays showed up negative, but he was held out of action Tuesday due to some painful bruising.
May 10 - 10:38 PM

X-rays came back negative on Jed Lowrie's right foot.

Lowrie left Monday's game against the Red Sox after fouling a ball off his foot. He was on crutches after the game, but things could have been worse. Consider him day-to-day for now.
May 10 - 12:05 AM

Jed Lowrie was sent for X-rays on his right foot.

Lowrie exited Monday's game in the seventh inning, apparently after fouling a ball off his foot. The Athletics should provide an update on his status Tuesday afternoon.
May 9 - 11:17 PM

Jed Lowrie (calf) is available off the bench Monday against the Mariners.

Lowrie is still dealing with a bit of a calf issue, so the A's are being cautious. Chris Coghlan is starting at second base Monday while Mark Canha will play third.
May 2 - 8:10 PM

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

Lowrie missed a game this past weekend with a sore calf, but it was clearly nothing serious. The second baseman has 11 RBI in 20 games this season and he batted cleanup for Oakland on Tuesday night at Comerica Park.
