Astros | Jed Lowrie amps up fielding

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 15:11:17 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) fielded ground balls at shortstop and third base more aggressively Friday, July 3, but he is still a few weeks away from returning.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Lowrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) to enter into some kind of rotation with Luis Valbuena ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) and Carlos Correa ($5,100, 10.2% of cap). However, it is likely Lowrie and Correa receive the majority of playing time down the stretch, with the Astros working Lowrie back into the mix cautiously initially.

Astros | Jed Lowrie making progress

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 16:23:18 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) has progressed from swinging a wiffle ball bat to using a fungo as he tries to return after having surgery on his right thumb.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for Lowrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), the shortstop of the future, Carlos Correa ($5,100, 10.2% of cap), is up in the big leagues and isn't going anywhere. The youngster looks right at home in the majors and is contributing for fantasy owners immediately. Lowrie won't be back until sometime after the All-Star break and is unlikely to have any impact at all for Houston. You can drop him in the majority of formats if you haven't already.

Astros | Jed Lowrie to 60-day DL

Thu, 07 May 2015 09:39:11 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie will be out until after the All-Star break after tearing a ligament in his thumb last week. In his absence, Marwin Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is a low-end shortstop option at FantasyScore as the starting shortstop. Keep an eye on prospect Carlos Correa, though, who has been dominating at Class AA and is being promoted to the top minor league level soon.

Astros | Jed Lowrie out until after break

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 16:48:24 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) will need surgery to fix a ligament tear in his right thumb, and he'll be out until after the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough break for a hitter that was on fire to start the year, hitting .300 (18-for-60) with four home runs and 10 RBI. It'll be hard for the Astros to replace his production at shortstop, but Marwin Gonzalez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will give it his best shot. Jonathan Villar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) could also factor in. Gonzalez should be an AL-only target in deep leagues.

Astros | Jed Lowrie on the DL

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 14:57:21 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) is on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Marwin Gonzalez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is the likely replacement at shortstop for Lowrie while he recovers on the DL. Gonzalez should be a target in AL-only leagues for a middle infield spot, especially if you own Lowrie. Gonzalez, however, isn't an ideal shortstop option for FantasyScore users tonight against San Diego Padres starter Tyson Ross.

Astros | Jed Lowrie to have MRI

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 05:24:15 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) left the team to have an MRI on his right thumb Tuesday, April 28. He injured it after landing awkwardly on it during a slide.

Fantasy Tip: Marwin Gonzalez ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) will likely fill in, but he doesn't do much to turn the FantasyScore needle.

Astros | Jed Lowrie leaves with injury

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 22:52:03 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) left the game Monday, April 27, against the San Diego Padres due to a right thumb injury.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain how much time, if any, Lowrie will miss. Marwin Gonzalez ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) might be a solid low-end FantasyScore option if he gets into the starting nine.

Astros | Jed Lowrie red-hot

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 14:46:32 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie is hitting .444 (8-for-18) with two doubles, four RBI, six walks and a .600 on-base percentage in his last six games.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is hitting .281 (16-for-57) on the season with three home runs and 19 RBI. He's been one of the most consistent hitters in the Houston lineup in the early going, and he should be owned in all formats. He may be a bit too expensive tonight, though, going against San Diego Padres starter James Shields and in a pitching-friendly environment.

Astros | Jed Lowrie out Tuesday

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 16:31:14 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 21. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at shortstop and hitting fifth in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't an attractive FantasyScore consideration at the 6 tonight, even going against the struggling Walker. The Astros are playing at pitcher-friendly Safeco Field tonight, too.

Astros | Jed Lowrie receiving day off

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 14:42:52 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Scott Kazmir Monday, April 13. SS Jonathan Villar is starting at shortstop and hitting seventh in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Villar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be considered a weak play Monday going against Kazmir, who was very sharp in his first outing of the 2015 season last week.
