Astros | Jed Lowrie insists his knee feels fine

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (knee) is pleased with the progress of his right knee and was happy to be able to play back-to-back nine-inning games Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 18 and 19, in St. Louis without having any issues. Lowrie continues to build up strength in his legs after missing 52 games with an injury to his right ankle and leg. The Astros are taking it slow with Lowrie to make sure they don't jeopardize his health. "My knee feels 100 percent," Lowrie said. "My knee feels great. I think it's a matter of getting into shape where I can play every day. That's something that, in my estimation and from what the doctors and the training staff have told me, is completely expected."
