Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Gets fourth straight start
Lowrie will serve as Oakland's designated hitter and No. 2 batter in Tuesday's game against the Twins.
Lowrie will pick up his fourth consecutive start Tuesday, with three of those assignments coming against right-handed pitching. The rebuilding Athletics may not be inclined to continue carving out regular playing time for a veteran on expiring deal, especially while he's sitting on an underwhelming .540 OPS on the campaign. It's worth noting that Sheldon Neuse (groin) is sitting out Tuesday for the third straight game, and Lowrie could be a candidate to lose hold of an everyday role if Neuse avoids a trip to the injured list....

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Sits after four straight starts
Lowrie is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins.
Lowrie went 5-for-14 with three walks and a run while starting in each of Oakland's last four games, but Sheldon Neuse (groin) was out of the lineup for three of those contests. With Neuse back in action as the Athletics' designated hitter for Wednesday's series finale, Oakland didn't have room in the lineup for Lowrie, who could end up settling into more of a part-time role moving forward....

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Picking up pace at plate
Lowrie, who went 2-for-4 in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Angels, is now hitting .364 (4-for-11) with two RBI, two walks and two runs over his last four games.
The modest surge has quickly boosted the veteran's average from .188 to .220. Lowrie's .220/.294/.271 slash line entering Sunday's action is still well below his career standards, but his recent body of work implies he could be on his way to shedding an early funk.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: On base three times in win
Lowrie went 1-for-2 with an RBI single, two walks and two runs in a win over the Tigers on Thursday.
Lowrie had been on the bench for three of the past four games, but he made an impact in Thursday's victory. The veteran also pushed his average back up to the Mendoza Line with his timely single, but his current .200/.288/.260 slash line still has ample room for improvement.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Back in action for Game 2
Lowrie (back) will serve as Oakland's designated hitter and No. 3 batter in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Tigers, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Lowrie remained on the bench for the fourth game in a row in the Athletics' 6-0 loss in the earlier contest due to a sore lower back, but manager Mark Kotsay said in advance of the doubleheader that the 37-year-old was available in a pinch-hitting capacity. The veteran will now get a chance to put an end to his absence in Game 2 and should fill a part-time role for Oakland moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Not playing against lefty in Game 1
Lowrie (back) is out of the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Tigers.
The switch-hitting Lowrie is typically included in the lineup against left-handed starting pitchers such as the Tigers' Tarik Skubal, but he'll remain on the bench for the fourth game in a row while he manages lower-back tightness. Right-hander Alex Faedo is scheduled to pitch for Detroit in Game 2, so Lowrie will most likely remain out for that game as well.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Remains out of lineup
Lowrie (back) isn't starting Monday against the Tigers.
Lowrie was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to lower-back tightness, although he was reportedly available off the bench. He'll likely be available in a depth capacity once again Monday, and he should be considered day-to-day for now.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Won't start due to back issue
The Athletics scratched Lowrie from the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins due to lower-back tightness, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Though manager Mark Kotsay said Lowrie will be available off the bench, the 38-year-old's poor track record of durability throughout his career means that the Athletics could play it safe and hold him out of the lineup beyond Sunday. Chad Pinder will step in as the Athletics' designated hitter in place of Lowrie, who can be viewed as day-to-day until he's cleared to make his next start.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Gets breather Saturday
Lowrie isn't starting Saturday against the Guardians.
Lowrie returned to action Friday and went 0-for-4 with a run, a walk and a strikeout. Sheldon Neuse will serve as the designated hitter while Kevin Smith starts at the hot corner.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Back from injured list
Lowire was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday.
Lowrie wound up missing 11 days while on the injured list. He's ready to go now and should fill a semi-regular role, as he'd started five of the season's first nine games prior to his absence.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Lands on COVID-19 injured list
Lowrie was placed on the COVID-19 injured list for an unspecified reason Monday.
The Athletics haven't revealed whether Lowrie has tested positive for COVID-19, but he'll be forced to spend time away from the team to begin the home series against Baltimore. There isn't a minimum amount of time a player has to spend on the COVID-19 IL, so Lowrie will be eligible to return as soon as he clears the health and safety protocols. Christian Bethancourt will serve as the designated hitter and bat fifth Monday.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Drives in three runs
Lowrie went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, a walk and an additional run scored during Tuesday's extra-inning loss at Tampa Bay.
The veteran infielder opened the scoring with a three-run shot to right during the first frame, but the lead only lasted an inning for Oakland. Tuesday marked only Lowrie's second start through five games this season, and he's gone 3-for-8 with a home run and four RBI in those two contests.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Multi-hit effort Saturday
Lowrie logged his first start of the season in Saturday's loss to the Phillies and went 2-for-4 with an RBI single.
The veteran slotted into the designated hitter role in his first start of the season after going without a hit in a pinch-hit at-bat Friday. Lowrie was listed as the primary first baseman on the initial iteration of the regular-season depth chart, but he's yet to log any time there and was not in the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Phillies, either....

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Not starting Opening Day
Lowrie is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies.
Previous reports indicated Lowrie would be Oakland's primary first baseman this season, but he won't fill that role Opening Day for the A's. His absence could be a sign that he needs more time to ramp up after joining the team late in March. Seth Brown starts at first base in his absence.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Opening as primary first baseman
Lowrie is projected to open the season as the Athletics' primary first baseman, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
The versatile veteran is listed as the top first baseman on the first edition of the regular-season depth chart, despite the fact he has just 28 total innings of career experience at the position. Lowrie has been logging plenty of reps at first since re-signing with the Athletics on March 25, and he notably swung a hot bat over a very small Cactus League sample with a .444 average over 10 plate appearances. Despite the current depth chart designation, it's likely Lowrie sees Seth Brown rotate in at the position a fair amount as well; accordingly, it's Brown that's listed as the starting first baseman in Friday's Opening Day lineup against the Phillies....

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Returns to Oakland
Lowrie signed a one-year contract with the Athletics on Friday, Eno Sarris of The Athletic reports.
Lowrie appeared in 139 games for Oakland last year and slashed .245/.318/.398 with 14 homers, 69 RBI and 55 runs. The 37-year-old should have an opportunity to carve out playing time in the team's rebuilding lineup in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Wearing splint to start offseason
Lowrie's medical evaluation Friday revealed a hairline fracture in his right wrist, and he'll wear a splint for the next four weeks, the team's official site reports.
Lowrie visited with hand specialist Dr. Thomas Melhoff in Houston, and the discovery of the hairline fracture will cause the veteran to start the offseason limited by the splint. Lowrie is headed for unrestricted free agency this offseason, and after bouncing back to an extent in 2021 following two injury-marred seasons, the Athletics could be interested in a reunion at the right salary....

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Goes on IL
Lowrie was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a sprained right hand.
Lowrie could be eligible to return for the final game of the regular season, but even if he's recovered from the hand injury there's no guarantee Oakland activates him for one trivial contest. The veteran cooled off after a red-hot start to the season and has hit .245/.318/.398 with 14 home runs and 69 RBI in 139 games. Despite being 37 years old, Lowrie still figures to draw moderate interest on the free-agent market this offseason.... See More ... See Less
