Athletics | Jed Lowrie back at second base

Wed, 25 May 2016 16:11:37 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie is back at second base and is hitting fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma Wednesday, May 25, after being activated from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Double check to see if Lowrie was dropped by his previous owners in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. He's not bad in those setups for middle infield depth, as the switch-hitter is batting .302 on the season. He has little power, though, and also hasn't stolen a base this season.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie returning Wednesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 18:14:16 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie (shin) will be activated from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, May 25, according to manager Bob Melvin.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie likely will be an everyday player for Oakland once he is activated but may struggle at the plate early on. He is hitting .302 so far this season and is a low-end option in deeper mixed leagues. Owners in daily fantasy leagues may want to see him play in a game or two before considering him as a starting candidate.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie eyeing Wednesday return

Fri, 20 May 2016 16:10:34 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie (shin) will play with Class AAA Nasvhille in Las Vegas Monday, May 23, before being activated from the disabled list to start against the Seattle Mariners Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie is a low-end option in mixed leagues, and owners will hope the injury hasn't derailed his respectable start to the season. Lowrie had a .302 batting average with 17 RBI before being placed on the DL Wednesday, May 11. Tyler Ladendorf will lose any minimal fantasy value he had with Lowrie's activation.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie may miss minimum time

Wed, 18 May 2016 11:03:26 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie (shin) is running again Wednesday, May 18, and he thinks he could need just one rehab game to return when he's eligible May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie was off to a .302 start with 17 RBI. Tyler Ladendorf and Chris Coghlan have platooned in his stead, but neither threatens his spot when he's ready. Lowrie is a low-end mixed leaguer when he returns.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie making progress

Mon, 16 May 2016 16:57:20 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie (shin) hit off a tee Sunday, May 15, and is now doing some work on defense during batting practice. The club is hopeful his stay on the disabled list will be brief.

Fantasy Tip: It's understandable that the A's want the veteran infielder back as quick as possible, considering he's been out to a nice start in his return to Oakland with an impressive .302/.341/.345 line. When he comes back, that will negatively influence Chris Coghlan, who has been receiving starts at second base.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie hits off tee

Sun, 15 May 2016 09:36:34 -0700

Oakland Athletics INF Jed Lowrie (shin) hit off a tee Saturday, May 14. However, he has not resumed running yet.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie's .302 average and 17 RBI make him worth stashing in AL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues. INF Chris Coghlan will continue to see the bulk of the action at the keystone position in his absence.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie sheds crutches

Fri, 13 May 2016 14:55:07 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie (shin) no longer requires crutches or a walking boot.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie isn't a must-stash bat outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, as he is currently only moving the needle in two categories (.302 batting average and 17 RBI). Chris Coghlan is a stopgap option in deep leagues, as he projects to see the majority of time at the keystone with Lowrie out.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie still on crutches

Wed, 11 May 2016 14:12:54 -0700

Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie (shin) is still on crutches and will not begin baseball activities for at least nine to 10 days, manager Bob Melvin said Wednesday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries have hindered Lowrie's fantasy stock throughout his career, and his hot start (.302 batting average and 17 RBI) to 2016 is no different. Expect Chris Coghlan to see the majority of time at second base with Lowrie out, and Coghlan has fleeting value in deep mixed leagues.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie DL-bound

Wed, 11 May 2016 09:35:15 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie (shin) was put on the 15-day disabled list with a right shin contusion Wednesday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie doesn't have any home runs, but he's hitting .302 with 17 RBI and can be an effective middle infielder in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues for his average. Keep him stashed there. In his absence, Chris Coghlan and/or Tyler Ladendorf could split time at the keystone. Coghlan is the more attractive bat, but he's merely a short-term stopgap in deeper leagues.

Athletics | Danny Valencia, Jed Lowrie out injured

Tue, 10 May 2016 13:24:53 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia (hamstring) and 2B Jed Lowrie (foot) are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 10. 1B Yonder Alonso moves to third base and is hitting seventh, while 2B Chris Coghlan is starting at second base and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Sean O'Sullivan. 1B Billy Butler is playing first base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia just came off the DL for a hammy pull late last week, so this is concerning. Prepare for the worst -- another trip to the DL. Lowrie's X-rays came back negative and he's day-to-day. Act accordingly. Against O'Sullivan, Coghlan, Alonso and Butler could be worth selections as deep sleepers in daily games, but they're long shots to put up big numbers.
