Jed Lowrie smacked a walkoff RBI single in the A's 4-3 comeback win over the Astros on Saturday.

It was a much-needed emotional boost for the A's, who are now 14-20 since the July 31 trade deadline. Oakland was trailing by two entering the bottom of the ninth inning, but Josh Donaldson and Derek Norris both singled and then Josh Reddick slugged a game-tying two-run double. Lowrie, who's playing through a hairline fracture in his right index finger, finished it off soon after.

Led Lowrie (finger) will play catch on Tuesday.

Jed Lowrie (finger) hopes to start throwing in the next few days.

Aug 25 - 5:20 PM

Jed Lowrie (finger) is still unable to throw or hit.

Lowrie said the finger is feeling better despite being unable to do many baseball activities. The shortstop said he's hoping to be able to do one or both in the coming days. Lowrie has been on the disabled list for a week, and his timetable suggests he's unlikely to come off the DL when first eligible.
Aug 22 - 6:44 PM

Athletics placed SS Jed Lowrie on the 15-day disabled list with a hairline fracture in his right index finger.

Lowrie suffered the fracture last week while trying to field a hard grounder and continues to feel discomfort. The hope is that some rest will get him back on track. The A's have called up Andy Parrino to take his spot on the active roster and will likely use him as their primary shortstop in the short-term.

Jed Lowrie expects to be placed on the 15-day disabled list due to the hairline fracture in his right index finger.

Lowrie suffered the fracture last week while trying to field a hard grounder. He attempted to play through the injury, but it bothers him when he throws and it has also affected his swing. The A's are likely to call up Andy Parrino from Triple-A Sacramento this weekend to take over as the club's primary shortstop.

Jed Lowrie (finger) is not in the Athletics' starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the Royals.

Lowrie was diagnosed earlier this week with a hairline fracture in his right index finger. He wants to play through the injury, but it is clearly bothering him both in the field and at the plate. Look for the A's to call up Andy Parrino from Triple-A Sacramento in the coming days.
Aug 14 - 11:24 AM

An MRI has revealed a hairline fracture in Jed Lowrie's right index finger.

Lowrie has been dealing with the ailment for a week. He will try to play through it, as he's said it's only occasionally an issue for him at the plate. It does hurt when Lowrie throws, so the A's might opt to use him in the designated hitter spot some. The shortstop has one hit in 12 at-bats since the injury.
Aug 12 - 6:34 PM

Jed Lowrie is back in the Athletics' lineup Friday.

Lowrie hasn't started the last three games due to a bruised right index finger, but he pinch-hit Thursday and is back in the lineup Friday. The 30-year-old is batting .244/.324/.359 this season.
Aug 8 - 5:08 PM

Jed Lowrie was retired as a pinch-hitter on Thursday.

Lowrie has been three straight starts with a bruised right index finger, but the injury doesn't affect him at the plate. He should be back in the lineup over the weekend.
Aug 8 - 4:18 AM

Jed Lowrie (finger) remained out of the Athletics' lineup Thursday.

Manager Bob Melvin said Wednesday that he expected Lowrie to be ready to play Thursday, but the shortstop said his finger is still "pretty swollen, pretty bruised." He's available to pinch-hit but won't play the field until he can throw without pain. Eric Sogard is getting another start in Lowrie's place.
