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.

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.

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.

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."

Lowrie suffered a bruised right index finger when he was hit by a grounder Monday. It doesn't affect his hitting, as he'll likely be available to pinch-hit Wednesday.

Jed Lowrie drove in three of the Athletics' four runs Monday in the loss to the Tigers.

Lowrie has been ice cold for about two months now, but five hits and five RBI in his last three games gives him something to latch on to. He still has it in him to be a useful mixed-league middle infielder the rest of the way.
