According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Athletics are unlikely to extend a qualifying offer to Jed Lowrie.
The 30-year-old shortstop had a disappointing season at the dish in 2014, slashing just .249/.321/.355 with six homers and 50 RBI. While the team may still have interest in retaining him, the A's appear likely to do so on the open market. Nov 2 - 11:31 PM

Jed Lowrie had a two-run single in Sunday's season finale against the Rangers.

With a two-run lead in a must-win game, Lowrie provided some valuable insurance with his two RBI in the ninth inning. The shortstop took a step backward from his breakout 2013 season, batting .249/.321/.355 with just six homers and 50 RBI this season. The 30-year-old will hit the free agent market this winter.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Sunday that Jed Lowrie (foot) was removed from their game against the Phillies because he didn't have his necessary range after being hit by a pitch.

It sounds as though the injury isn't believed to be serious, so Lowrie should be considered day-to-day. Nick Punto would continue to fill-in should he be forced to miss a game or two.

Jed Lowrie was removed from Sunday's game against the Phillies in the fifth inning with an apparent injury.

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.

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.
