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.

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.

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.

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.

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie hit his first spring training home run Tuesday, March 31, while batting right-handed.
Fantasy Tip: In 2012, the switch-hitting Lowrie ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) clubbed 16 homers in just 387 plate appearances in his first tour of duty with the Astros. He makes for a good late-round target at middle infield and could reach the teens in homers.
