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.

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.

Joe Stiglich of CSNBayArea.com 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.

Jed Lowrie was sent for an MRI on his left foot.

Lowrie has been dealing with a bunion on his left foot for a month and was finally placed on the disabled list over the weekend. Surgery has been discussed, but there should be more clarity on his status following the MRI.
Mon, Aug 8, 2016 07:34:00 PM

Athletics placed INF Jed Lowrie on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 4, with a bunion on his left foot.

Lowrie has been bothered by the foot issue for a while now. He'll be out for the season if he undergoes surgery, but a decision on that hasn't been made yet. Max Muncy should handle second base while Lowrie is sidelined.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin admitted he isn't sure how much longer Jed Lowrie can keep playing with his injured left toe.

Lowrie likely needs surgery but has been avoiding it because the recovery time would be about three months. He's hit only .200 since July 1 and is obviously in a great deal of pain. Lowrie ordered inserts that have yet to arrive but could alleviate the pain enough for him to continue playing. "We’re hopeful the orthotics will allevate it," said Melvin. "But I don’t know that he can continue at this pace, the way it is now." Lowrie has hit only .263 this year with two homers and 27 RBI.

Jed Lowrie (toe) is out of the A's lineup Thursday.

Lowrie has been dealing with a toe injury for a week, though he did manage a run scored and an RBI on Wednesday. Max Muncy will start at second base and bat second on Thursday night against Angels righty Ricky Nolasco.
Thu, Aug 4, 2016 03:16:00 PM

Jed Lowrie could be headed for the 15-day disabled list with a toe injury.

Lowrie injured the toe last week and was still moving gingerly on Tuesday despite getting back-to-back off days Sunday and Monday. The 32-year-old infielder has been a big disappointment for the Athletics this season, batting just .263/.312/.322 with two home runs and 26 RBI in 86 games.
Wed, Aug 3, 2016 08:39:00 AM

Jed Lowrie is on the A's bench Wednesday.

Arismendy Alcantara will start at second base and bat ninth versus Astros right-hander Doug Fister. Lowrie has posted a disappointing .676 OPS with two home runs in 76 games this season for the Athletics.
