Lowrie isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Angels. Lowrie went 0-for-10 with two runs, three walks and three strikeouts across the last three games. Tony Kemp will take over at second base and bat eighth.
Lowrie is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against Kansas City. Lowrie posted a .999 OPS over his first 14 games of the year but has hit just .224/.301/.345 in 47 games since that point. Tony Kemp will get the nod at second base in his absence.
Lowrie went 1-for-4 with a home run in Thursday's loss against the Royals. Lowrie accounted for all the offense the Athletics would muster with a fourth-inning blast, and the veteran now has five long balls on the season. He extended his hitting streak to three games, but it's worth noting Lowrie has been seeing the ball well and has recorded at least one knock in eight of his last 10 contests, posting a .343 average and a .939 OPS in that span.
Lowrie went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Diamondbacks. The veteran is showing signs of heating up once again, as he's now tallied multiple hits in three of his last five games. Lowrie has hit .257 in his last 17 games, very consistent with his .251 season-long average.
Lowrie is not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Rockies, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Manager Bob Melvin has made sure to give the veteran infielder plenty of days off this season after he dealt with knee injuries throughout the previous two campaigns. Tony Kemp will start at second base and bat second Sunday.
