Jed Lowrie stayed hot on Friday against the Red Sox, going 4-for-5 with two doubles.
Lowrie is hitting an impressive .372 and he leads the majors with 32 hits and 22 RBI. He started his career with the Red Sox and showed them a little bit about what they're missing, not that the 17-2 leaders of the American League East need much help. He'll look to keep it going on Saturday against Chris Sale. He is 8-for-20 (.400) with two RBI and four strikeouts in his career against the left-handed starter for Boston. Apr 21 - 2:41 AM

Jed Lowrie went deep for the sixth time Wednesday in Oakland’s 12-11 win over the White Sox.

Lowrie gave Oakland its first lead of the game by smashing a two-run homer to left field with two outs in the eighth inning. He also singled and scored in the fourth. The 34-year-old has been a godsend for fantasy owners in the early going. He’s hit .435 during his five-game hitting streak and now leads the majors in RBI with 21.

Jed Lowrie finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 10-2 rout of the visiting White Sox.

Lowrie socked the go-ahead homer in a five-run inning as he celebrated his 34th birthday in style. The game also marked the 50th anniversary of the team's first game at the Oakland Coliseum. Lowrie is slashing an impressive .351/.407/.595 so far on the young season to endear himself to fantasy owners in all formats.

Jed Lowrie drove in three runs in a victory over the White Sox on Monday.

Two of the RBI came on a single in the eighth inning, and Lowrie also drove in a run on a fielder's choice an inning earlier. The veteran infielder has gotten off to a strong start to begin 2018, and now has a .343/.403/.557 line for his troubles. That's obviously not sustainable, but you can certainly do worse as a backup infielder on your fantasy roster.

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in a win over the Mariners on Sunday.

Mariners starter Felix Hernandez grooved a 3-0 fastball to Lowrie in the first inning and Lowrie decided to swing the bat, depositing it in the seats in right field. The homer was his fourth of the year, giving him 14 RBI and eight runs scored. A lot of people were sleeping on the veteran this year despite a 2017 in which he hit 14 homers, collected 69 RBI and scored a career-best 86 runs, but he's out to prove it was no fluke. His .348/.403/.576 line in the early days of the season is helping his cause.
Apr 15 - 6:51 PM

Jed Lowrie finished 3-for-6 with a three-run home run and four RBI in Wednesday's 16-6 beatdown of the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine.

Lowrie was one of three A's to home in a laugher, including two homers in the final two innings. The L.A. bullpen was just serving up batting practice in the later innings. He has driven in 11 runs over the past nine outings and he has four multi-hit games over the past seven contests. He'll look to keep it rolling Friday in Seattle against left-hander Ariel Miranda. The switch hitter is slashing .272/.350/.409 against southpaws since the start of the 2015 season.
Apr 12 - 2:37 AM

Jed Lowrie went 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a walk versus the Rangers on Thursday.

There are few position players more likely that Lowrie to be traded this year; not only is he a pending free agent on a likely non-contender, but he has a prospect hot on his heels in Franklin Barreto. Still, a trade could make Lowrie more attractive in fantasy leagues by putting him in a better lineup in perhaps a better ballpark for hitters. Lowrie is hitting .313 with five RBI through eight games.
Apr 5 - 9:38 PM

Jed Lowrie finished 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and two RBI in Wednesday's 6-2 win against the Rangers.

Lowrie hit safely in the first three outings but he had no extra-base hits or RBI. He has changed that since flipping the calendar from March to April, collecting a pair of doubles with four RBI across the past three games. He is owed $8 million by the thrifty A's, a team struggling in attendance early in the season. His named was bandied about during the offseason in trade rumors and he could be moved if the team eventually falls back in the standings and doesn't produce like expected.
Apr 5 - 2:15 AM

Jed Lowrie hit his first home run of the spring in the Athletics' Cactus League tie with the White Sox on Monday.

It was a fifth-inning two-run shot off right-hander Danny Farquhar. Lowrie quietly had a career year in 2017 and should carry some deep-league fantasy value this year as the No. 3 hitter in what could be a sneaky-good A's lineup.
Mar 5 - 6:42 PM

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets have discussed a possible Jed Lowrie trade with the Athletics, but that the two sides don't appear to match up for a deal.

The Mets are known to be in the market for a second baseman, with trade targets like Ian Kinsler, Jason Kipnis, and Josh Harrison also under consideration, so it makes sense that they would at least all on Lowrie. It doesn't sound like talks got very far, though. Lowrie is owed $8 million in 2018 and batted .277/.360/.448 with 14 home runs and 69 RBI over 153 games this past season.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that Jed Lowrie "could be on the move sooner rather than later."

The A's were originally planning on keeping Lowrie through at least the trade deadline last year after picking up his $6 million club option for 2018, but Slusser notes that second basemen are in demand this offseason. The 33-year-old quietly put together his best season in 2017, batting .277/.360/.448 batting line with 14 home runs, 69 RBI, and 86 runs scored in 153 games.

Athletics exercised 2B Jed Lowrie's $6 million club option for 2018.

Lowrie managed to stay off the disabled list this season and produced a strong .277/.360/.448 batting line with 14 home runs, 69 RBI, and 86 runs scored in 153 games. He'll open the 2018 campaign as the Athletics' starting second baseman.

The A's will pick up Jed Lowrie's option and plan to keep him as their second baseman next year.

One imagines they might change their mind if a strong trade offer comes in, but the $6 million option is a no-brainer. The 33-year-old Lowrie had the best season of his career this year, finishing with a .277/.360/.448 line in 153 games. It's just the third time in his career that he's played in as many as 100 games, so banking on an encore doesn't seem like a great idea.

Jed Lowrie delivered a two-run double as the Athletics topped the Rangers 5-2 in the season finale on Sunday.

It’s fitting that Lowrie ends his season with yet another double. He’ll finish the year with 49 doubles, the most in Athletics history. He was hoping to get to 50 doubles, but he was left on deck in the ninth inning. The 33-year-old was largely forgotten as a fantasy option coming into 2017, but he arguably had his best season. He’ll finish with a .277/.360/.448 batting line with 14 homers and 69 RBI. It should be an easy call for the A’s to pick up his $6 million club option for 2018, though he could become trade bait.

Jed Lowrie went 3-for-5 with a grand slam and an RBI double to lead the A's past the Tigers 9-8 on Tuesday.

Lowrie's grand slam came off Alex Wilson in the eighth, giving the A's the one-run lead. Those were the final runs of the night. It was Lowrie's 14th homer, leaving him two short of his career. He added to his career high in doubles with his 47th tonight.
