Lowrie is not in Saturday's lineup against the Twins.
Lowrie had started each of the Athletics' last five games, but he hit just .118/.211/.176 across 19 plate appearances in that span. Tony Kemp will take over at second base and hit eighth.
Lowrie isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Rays.
Lowrie will get a breather after he went 3-for-4 with a double and a run in Friday's win over Tampa Bay. Tony Kemp will start at second base and bat seventh.
Lowrie went 3-for-4 with a double and a run in Friday's win over the Rays.
Offense was hard to come by for both teams in the pitchers' duel, but Lowrie managed to reach base three times. He scored Oakland's first run in the seventh inning on a single off the bat of Seth Brown. Lowrie has three three-hit games over his past six contests and is batting .478 (11-for-23) with four doubles and five RBI over that span.
Lowrie went 3-for-4 with two doubles, one RBI and a run scored in Monday's 5-4 win over the Blue Jays.
Lowrie opened the game's scoring with an RBI double in the second inning and was brought home on a Stephen Piscotty long ball the next at-bat. After going 0-for-19 over his previous six games, the 37-year-old has now produced two straight three-hit performances. He owns a .786 OPS with 20 RBI on the year.
Lowrie is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays.
The 37-year-old heads to the bench after going 4-for-25 with a home run and a pair of doubles while starting each of the past six games. Tony Kemp will fill in for Lowrie at the keystone.
Lowrie went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Orioles.
Lowrie is continuing his unexpected brilliance to start the season. His third long ball this year came off Tyler Wells in the fourth inning with two runners on. The second baseman only has two starts in which he hasn't reached base safely. He has nine multi-hit games and the 37-year-old is slashing .296/.367/.507.
Lowrie went 2-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 13-12, extra-innings win over Minnesota.
The doubles were the fifth and sixth of 2021 for Lowrie, who's now hitting .323 with 14 RBI in 62 at-bats. Injuries limited the second baseman to seven hitless at-bats in his two years with the Mets and appeared to have derailed his career, but he's enjoyed unprecedented success early in the new season, serving as an offensive catalyst during Oakland's 11-game winning streak. Lowrie has also benefited from hitting in front of the red-hot Matt Olson -- yet another factor that's made the veteran infielder a formidable fantasy asset.
Lowrie is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Twins, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Lowrie went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run during Game 1 but won't start both ends of the twin bill. Vimael Machin will start at the keystone and bat eighth in the nightcap for Oakland.
Lowrie isn't starting Saturday's game against the Tigers.
Lowrie has had multi-hit performances in each of the past six games and has hit .462 with two home runs, 10 RBI and seven runs during that time. However, Vimael Machin will take over at second base Saturday, batting eighth.
Lowrie went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and a walk during Tuesday's 7-5 win at Arizona.
The 36-year-old's three-run shot to left field during the seventh inning was instrumental in Oakland's comeback, as it tied the contest at 5-5. Lowrie now has four straight multi-hit games -- a stretch in which he's gone 8-for-18 with two homers, one double, eight RBI and six runs.
Lowrie will start at second base and bat third Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.
Lowrie has been a pleasant surprise in an otherwise disappointing start to the season for the 4-7 Athletics. Since breaking camp with the big club after attending spring training as a non-roster invitee, Lowrie has unseated Tony Kemp as the top option at second base, picking up 10 starts through 12 games. He's only increased his job security by recording exactly two hits in each of his last three contests, a span in which he's collected six RBI.
Lowrie went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win against the Astros.
Lowrie has been picking things up of late following a slow start to the season and he's hit safely in three straight games while recording back-to-back multi-hit games for the first time this season. He has gone 5-for-11 with a home run and four RBI during that three-game span.
Lowrie went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and an additional run scored Friday in a victory over Houston.
Lowrie plated the game's first run with a solo shot to right field in the fourth inning and also crossed the plate following Matt Olson's homer in the eighth. The long ball was Lowrie's first of the campaign, and he is slashing .276/.364/.448 through 33 plate appearances.
Lowrie isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Astros, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Lowrie had started each of the past four games, going 3-for-16 with two doubles, an RBI and two runs during that time. Tony Kemp will take over at second base Thursday, batting ninth.
Lowrie is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against Houston, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Lowrie started the first two games of the year, a positive sign after he missed most of the last two seasons while battling multiple injuries. He looked good, going 2-for-6 with a pair of walks. Oakland will still be looking to manage his workload carefully, so it's no surprise to see him sit Saturday, with Tony Kemp taking over at second base.
Lowrie went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run in a loss to the Astros on Friday.
Lowrie corroborated his return to full health this spring, and after a hitless Opening Day, he looked like his old self by getting on base three times Friday. The fact the veteran has logged back-to-back starts at the keystone to start the season is certainly an encouraging sign as well with respect to how the Athletics view his durability.
Lowrie was informed Saturday that he'd made the Opening Day roster, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
It's quite the accomplishment for Lowrie, who's received just eight plate appearances over the last two years due to persistent injury problems. The Athletics will have to manage him very carefully to keep those issues at bay in his age-37 season, but they clearly feel he can contribute in an at least a part-time role. He hit a strong .272/.356/.448 over his last two full seasons, so there's reason to believe he can still help the team when he's in the lineup.
Lowrie, who went 0-for-8 with a walk in his first four Cactus League games, is 3-for-6 with two doubles, a solo home run and three runs overall in his last two exhibitions.
The veteran left the yard Tuesday against Madison Bumgarner in the loss to the Diamondbacks. which Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports marked the first hit of any kind for Lowrie in a major-league game since September 29, 2018. Manager Bob Melvin had consistently praised the balance of the switch-hitting Lowrie's swings from either side of the plate all spring, and the last two games, the ball is starting to fall in. Gallegos adds that Lowrie's latest surge is not only helping him secure a roster spot as a likely platoon mate for Tony Kemp at second base, but it's also strengthening his candidacy to hit No. 2 in the order.
Lowrie, playing his second game in the field this spring Friday against the Padres, made two impressive defensive plays at second base, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
The soon-to-be 37-year-old's mobility and range are a topic of considerable scrutiny this spring, considering Lowrie logged just eight plate appearances over the last two seasons due to significant knee problems. Consequently, his ability to make an off-balance throw on the run for a putout Friday carried more weight than such a play normally might and served as another sign for manager Bob Melvin the veteran may be ready to step into at least a platoon role in 2021. "It's really more about how healthy his legs look, and he's getting some pretty good swings with nothing to show for it," Melvin said. "But to be able to make good plays like that when you haven't been on the field for a while, I know makes him feel good."
Lowrie, who went 0-for-2 in his Cactus League debut against the Cubs on Tuesday, emerged from his first taste of game action feeling positive after logging just eight plate appearances since 2018, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. "The swings felt good," Lowrie said. "I thought I saw the ball well, took pitches I should have taken and swung at the ones I should have. The body feels good."
Lowrie never saw game action for the Mets in 2020 and logged those nine PAs back in 2019 before multiple knee issues derailed him. Tuesday's game thus had more significance than the typical spring debut, and Lowrie built up to it by taking plenty of live batting practice against multiple pitchers over the prior week. Lowrie will likely be deployed on an every-other-day basis the remainder of spring and also see time at designated hitter as he continues to reacclimate physically.
