Joe Stiglich of 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. Tue, Dec 27, 2016 09:14:00 AM

"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.

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.
